Constructed of flint and brick
this building contains the remain of a medieval timber framed building with
an open hall. The living room has been furnished in 17th century
style. The middle room of the house has been designed to show the
transition from a medieval to a 17th century dwelling. When the fire
is lit in the living room of this timber framed 17th century house, it is an
ideal setting for story telling.
stories have been told by the fireside in this house? Think about the Catchlove family who lived here… what stories would they have told? Would
they have been passed down through the generations? Write a story to be
read aloud beside the fire in Walderton.
