Visit Manor Cottages at Sheffield Manor Lodge for a true 1940’s experience

Visit Manor Cottages for a true 1940’s experience. You will meet ARP warden John Barnes and his family and find out what life on Manor Oaks Farm would have been like during World War Two including how they ate, lived and worked the land.

Whilst exploring you can try your hand at putting out an incendiary bomb, wash without electricity and children can dress up as an evacuee. Don’t worry we have a few full size outfits if the adults want to join in too!
