Amicorum are annual visitors to Little Moreton Hall, a National Trust property near Congleton. A beautiful place to camp, we always receive a very warm welcome from the team there and are delighted to speak to many visitors over the course of the weekend, answering questions on all aspects of life in medieval times. We had willow weavers, candle makers, squire training, gunpowder displays and archery to name just a few of the activities over the weekend. The cannon display always draws a large crowd and this event was no exception, the same with our arming of a knight.
This year we had the additional nerves of an approaching storm, with wind warnings in place across the weekend ensuring that all tent pegs were hammered that bit harder into the ground, but in the end we had a lovely weekend with more sunshine than showers.
Little Moreton Hall is a wonderful event to take part in as a Living History group, not just because they have real toilets but also because of the friendliness and genuine interest of staff and visitors alike. We look forward to attending again next September!
