Here's how it looked during its rebuilding back in April 2013:
On arrival, I bought myself a spiffy new hat, and then set off for Tindall's Cottage, getting rather distracted by some pigs along the way.
The cottage is still a work in progress, but the Museum have started to furnish the rooms. As I warmed myself by the newly-lit fire, a museum volunteer explained their plans to grow hops and flax and then to demonstrate brewing and fibre production in the cottage.
Leaving Tindall's Cottage, I had a good wander around the rest of the site, including visting parts of the woods I don't remember seeing before.

In my next post I plan to show off the trees, large artworks based on the trees, and some of the dancers from the day.
