Year 5 visit the largest Tudor House in England
Year 5 went to explore what was once the biggest Tudor house in Britain - Basing House. Unfortunately there is only a ruin today, however, we were able to explore Tudor artefacts found from the site and have a remarkable tour with the leading historian on Basing House - Alan Turton. We were lucky enough to see re-enactments of the battle during the Civil War and learn how to load and shoot a musket and use a pike. We would like to thank all those people who made the visit possible, especially the Hampshire Cultural Trust, Alan Turton and also the amazing English Civil War Society who joined us on the day.
