Make mud pies
Come along to Springhill this summer and have a go at making some 'mud pies'. All you need is some mud and then some more mud. Every good mud pie needs some decorations. Stones, sticks, shells and leaves all make great mud pie toppings.
The mud pie station is located in the new natural play area.
There's lots going on at Springhill this season. Explore our gardens, enjoy our natural play trails, see what's on display in the costume museum or drop into the Servants' Hall Tea Room for a yummy hot chocolate and some tasty treats. We can offer bespoke tours on request. For more information please contact us.
Discover 300 years of history at Springhill through a number of engaging and interactive Sandford Award winning programmes.Special seasonal programmes take place at Hallowe’en and Christmas giving pupils a fulfilling and inspiring experience in a historical context as well as making for a fun day out for teachers and pupils alike.
The Chamomile lawn at Springhill is grown from a non flowering variety which has a feathery appearance and releases a strong scent when slightly bruised or trodden on. This small garden boasts a wide variety of herbs that would have been used for both culinary and medicinal purposes, ranging from flavouring for ice-cream to a lotion to cure baldness.
