Step back in time

This popular session is based on Dunham's past. Children are taken back in time as they come to look for work at the hall. They are given tasks to experience what life was like below stairs and on the estate to gain an understanding how it was different from today.

Explore & Investigate Local History

Find out what a local history study is all about by looking at the lives of real people that lived and worked on the Dunham estate in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with activities in our historic buildings and parkland, and access to our unique archives.
