Year 8 visit Kentwell Hall

On Tuesday 1st April Year 8 visited Kentwell Hall at Long Melford, Suffolk.

Kentwell, one of the finest moated Tudor Houses in England, is set in a 25-acre estate including beautiful parks and gardens, a working farm and extensive historic outbuildings. Most of the current building façade dates from the mid 16th century, but the origins of Kentwell are much earlier, with references in the Domesday Book of 1086.

As well as taking a tour of the stately home, pupils were also lucky enough to see lambs on the farm that had been born just 5-minutes before. Their lunch was shared (though not willingly!) with some of the beautiful peacocks wandering around.
