The Hornton History Group’s ‘A Child Through Time’ exhibition saw the group take over the village’s pavilion and demonstrate to visitors what life would have been like in Hornton through the ages, from Roman times right the way up to WWII.

Alongside the learning, there was a host of fun activities for children of all ages, these included archery, building Roman mosaics, writing with quills in the style of medieval calligraphers and creating their own Bayeux Tapestry.

Event organisers Lorna Abbott and Laurie Furneaux were delighted with how the event went and described it as a success.
