After a bit of a lie in and a cooked breakfast, we headed off to the Avoncroft Historic Buildings Museum where we spent four hours wandering through the grounds admiring examples of rescued buildings that had been re-erected on the site. There were quite a few agricultural buildings, a medieval town house, an Anderson shelter, an ice-house, a post windmill, and even a three person earth closet which was not for the shy as visitors sat side by side!
Also there is a fine collection of historic telephone kiosks, and it was a trip down memory lane looking at the different styles. We also wandered into their historic telephone exchange system that was a mass of wires, and clicking and whirring machines.
Today the museum was having a special telecommunications day where there were specialists on hand to explain the development of the telephone and how telecoms had assisted covert communication in war and how other communication systems had developed such as the Morse telegraph system to semaphore flags and there was an original enigma machine where you could have a go at sending encrypted messages.
With so much to see, it would be nice to visit again. We finished off the afternoon with a cup of tea in their Edwardian tea room.
