Review: Spring lambs at Chiltern Open Air Museum

Review: Spring lambs at Chiltern Open Air Museum

Two-year-old Tilly is obsessed with babies of all kinds so the opportunity to visit newborn lambs wasn’t an opportunity we were going to pass up. The Chiltern Open Air Museum is one of our local attractions and it’s something of a favourite. It feels rather understated, nestling in woodland down a rather minor road and with a sizeable site that makes even busy days feel relaxed. The museum is based around a collection of historic buildings that have been relocated to the museum site and offer an authentic insight into life from the past. Whereas last year Tilly’s ability to interact with the museum was limited, this visit revealed she’s of an age to get a huge amount from a visit.

Wintertime at Wendover Woods with the Gruffalo

We first ventured into the deep dark wood in August to track down the Gruffalo who was rumoured to be residing in Wendover Woods. Tilly was not yet walking but we enjoyed the trail and the reward at the end of it. We thought the Gruffalo had departed at the end of September but it seems he remains in the wood while the Gruffalo’s Child now has a winter-themed trail to explore. Tilly’s interest in the Gruffalo reached new heights over Christmas with the screening of both Gruffalo adaptations on TV, so it was time to put on out wellies and brave the wintry woods.
