The Tudor House

Hello

How are you doing?

I stepped back in time when I visited the stunning Tudor House at Eagle House School.  Built in 2003, it is just like the real thing. Made by craftsmen and schoolchildren alike, nobody was safe from a bit of wattle and daub.

The Princes Trust became part of the project, donating funds provided that the house had an authentic thatched roof and no concrete floor.  Experienced craftsmen used traditional methods and materials to create the Tudor House.  HRH Prince Charles visited to officially open it.









The lily-strewn lake looked beautiful nearby and an outdoor learning area, which has room for 40 children, is a great resource. In fact, the Tudor House is used by other local schools and organisations too.




There's one more post to come before we can enjoy our refreshments!

    1. You could really bring the period to life there and get their imaginations going, couldn't you. x

  2. It looks like the real thing and so good for teaching and learning in especially about the old ways of working with the materials used and how the space was utilised by the people who lived there:)
