History & Heritage

Meet Francoise Nicolle at Hamptonne

It's 1865 and Francoise Nicolle, her husband, mother and children live at Hamptonne Farm as tenant farmers.

  • Seasonal opening
20/05/2024 - 28/10/2024

Price: £8.15 - £12.50

More Information

It's a hard life ensuring that they can make payments to the landlord and have enough to live on, especially as Mr Nicolle is not in the best of health with his nerves.

The children have to help on the farm and Francoise tries her best to school them and teach them their letters and numbers when they are not busy with harvest or planting. But there is always the animals to take care of.
