From the warmth of summer to the depths of winter the clock has been turned back over a hundred years to rediscover this almost forgotten world. From planting and harvesting crops to animal husbandry; from building pigsties to bee-keeping; from tree-felling to driving steam engines and operating period machinery this hardy group - in their search for the authentic experience - undertook it all wearing period costumes and using only tools and materials available in 1885.
