MGCC: Abingdon Works Centre, Hampshire Hog Outing, Sunday 30th July
A leisurely day out with the Abingdon Works Centre at Breamore House and Countryside Museum near Fordingbridge with parking on the driveway leading up to the house and reduced admission for pre-booking.
The magnificent Elizabethan Breamore House overlooks the Avon Valley, on the edge of the New Forest, just north of Fordingbridge. The house was completed in 1583 and looks today much as it would have done to its original owners. Guided tours are included in the admission although numbers are limited so it’s first come first served!
Breamore Countryside Museum houses full-size replicas of numerous trades and crafts including a blacksmith, village shop, school, dairy, etc. The museum boasts one of the finest collections of steam powered farm machinery, tractors, barn machinery and historical tools.
