our visit to shibden hall!!
Posted: Feb 10, 2016 by: copley on: Calder
we looked at different areas of Tudor life during our visit to Shibden Hall. We looked at Tudor toys and had a go at playing with some such as the cup and ball. We looked at the fashion of the Tudor times focusing the 4 main materials they used. We even got to dress up in Tudor clothes!! Afterwards we had a look around the hall at the Tudor rooms. The bedrooms had huge beds with curtains round for warmth and privacy, the maid used a warming pan to warm the bed before the occupants got in!! The kitchen had a large fireplace used to cook meat. They used the fat from the meat to put into moulds to make candles! Nothing was wasted!!
