Re-opening of Denny Abbey and the Farmland Museum
Thursday May 20
The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey to reopen all indoor spaces on Thursday 20th May
Waterbeach, The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey, a museum telling the story of farming and social history in the Cambridgeshire Fens, will reopen all indoor displays on Thursday 20th May.
Visitors will be able to wander through 12th century Denny Abbey, an English Heritage property, and marvel at the architectural jigsaw created over time by the different religious orders who lived there.
Walnut Tree Cottage opens its doors, giving an insight into the home life of a local farm labourer in the 1940s. The stunning recreation of an early 20th century village shop conjurs up memories for older visitors, while the displays of Cambridgeshire farming equipment show the significance of agriculture to this part of the Fens.
There’s lots for children to do too. The museum’s outdoor play area is always open and during half term the museum is hosting Wildlife Week, with nature-themed craft activities, games and a trail.
The museum’s cafe, with new menu and barista coffee, will also be open providing both indoor and outdoor seating on which to enjoy a selection of cakes, cream teas and lunches.
