The warm odours of flowers and herb came sweet upon the sense    Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South


Join us for a fun-filled afternoon with Forest School teacher Helen Russ. We’ll be in our beautiful garden for a whole bundle of nature crafts and activities, inspired by the plants, trees and the wonderful outdoor space here at the House. If the weather’s bad, don’t worry, we’ll take the fun indoors, where we have plenty of room for nature-inspired play in our Servants’ Hall.

Drop-in for fun, crafts, nature and more, between 12 noon and 3pm on Wednesday May 30. Usual House admission (under 16s free), plus £1 for crafts.

We've got a house...it certainly is a beauty...I must try and make the house give as much pleasure to others as I can.’

Elizabeth Gaskell, in a letter to her friend Eliza Fox in 1850.
