Each year in a village not far from here a one day fete is put together to help the modern world understand how things were done in days gone by.
It was fascinating!
Watching logs being cut without modern machinery
Butter being churned in a box
Wool being spun on wheels
Cider being made through the old pressing system. Delicious free tasters!
Mattress fillings being.. well not sure what he was doing really.
Breton Cob horses showing their strength.
Numerous items of machinery being used for numerous tasks.
Oxen pulling carts and so much more.
The weather was perfect. So much effort for just one day. It was great so see so many children there too seeing that life existed quite efficiently without all the gizmos of today and it certainly made me appreciate modern facilities too!
