Attics and Acres Roadshow

Come and discover your local history by exploring the archive of the Graham Family of Norton Conyers, original home of the mad woman in the attic from Jane Eyre.

Who was poisoned and who was the Black Sheep of the family?

Have fun playing a Victorian parlour game and learn how the Autograph album, which includes the signatures of Lord Byron and Thomas Jefferson has been restored to its former glory in a hands-on conservation workshop.
