There are seven delightful period gardens at the Museum, which have been recreated to show the transition of gardens from the early 16th century through to the late 19th century. Find out what vegetables and plants were grown depending on social status of the house and how herbs were used as medicine. In the Tudor kitchen we prepare and cook the type of food that would have been eaten by the occupants of Bayleaf farmstead, here you can learn about the domestic chores, learn about the herbs and even try seasonal Tudor food! A Museum needlework group was formed to work on making replica historic clothing (in as authentic a way as possible), which could be worn on site at certain times. Learn more about the Historic Clothing Project and see how we use the costumes for interpretations.
