What's on

The oldest building in Flatford	Valley Farm, Flatford

Valley Farm Open Day

On Saturday 11 September, from 11am until 4pm, the ancient hall of Valley Farm at Flatford will be open to visitors – the first time in over a year. You will be able to enter the huge open all with its smoked blackened timbers, see the medieval staircase made from sliced tree trunks and marvel at the 12ft wide inglenook fireplace. Our knowledgeable volunteers will be on hand to share information about the property and point out some of the secret corners you can easily miss. There will be no charge for this event, but if you choose to park at Flatford, there will be a £5 charge for non National Trust members.
