Fun and educational field trip to Agecroft Hall today. The kids made a satchet and learned why they were worn, played a game of merels from the time period and we took a tour of the house and gardens.
Agecroft Hall is a Tudor manor house built in England in the 15th century, and was originally located in the Irwell Valley in Agecroft, Pendlebury, in the historic county of Lancashire, England. Thomas C. Williams, Jr. of Richmond, Virginia, purchased Agecroft Hall during the Country Place Era in the 1920s. Agecroft was dismantled, crated, transported across the ocean, and reconstructed in Richmond's Windsor Farms neighborhood in Richmond.
