34. Rural Life Centre
The Rural Life Centre began as a private collection of agricultural equipment, assembled by the late Madge and Henry Jackson, before opening to the public in 1973. The museum is now run by a charitable trust, the Old Kiln Museum Trust. Pleasantly distributed over ten acres of field, woodland and buildings, our exhibits include a large number of implements and devices marking in excess of 150 years of farming. Many aspects of village and rural life, incuding many ‘rescued’ village buildings, are displayed in realistic individual settings.
