Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse

Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse is a historic workhouse set in 50 acres of beautiful, unspoilt grounds. The museum is a great day out and has something for everyone. Look around the magnificent museum and find out about life for the inmates, follow their stories and find out about the people that ran the workhouse.

As detailed on the website, the building was a workhouse from "1777 to 1948, it provided food for lodgings and work for ill or destitute people from the local parishes".

The surrounding farm and grounds "include a lovely river valley, water meadows, woodlands and country trails." The farm itself is operated as a traditional 1920's farm with rare breed animals and working horses. There are pigs, cows and four Suffolk Punch horses which provide a demonstration of traditional field ploughing.

Children won't be bored, with plenty of opportunities to dress up as a victorian, meet the farm animals, collect animal stamps, visit the craft centre and there is a new children's woodland playground to explore.
