During the summer, we went to Rufford Old Hall‘s family fun day, where we had a go at archery and visited our friends at the North West Reptile Club (someday I hope to be able to take Dave along).

To be honest, I wasn’t going to bother going round the house this time, as we have been so often before and there was plenty to keep us occupied outside, but someone pointed out that the Tudor Great Hall was being restored, with its concrete and brick being replaced with traditional wattle and daub, so we had to have a look at that.
