Visit a 14th Century Dartmoor Longhouse

2 August 2015  10:30 - 12:30
Visit a 14th Century Dartmoor Longhouse. A longhouse is a medieval farmhouse in which both people and cattle were accommodated under a single roof. Higher Uppacott is a grade one listed building of rare and national importance. It is one of the few remaining examples of this historic building type, which has retained its lower or shippon end (cattle shelter) in its original unaltered state. One of the things that makes Higher Uppacott so special is that its development from its medieval beginnings through to the present day is still clearly evident within the fabric of the building. This development also vividly illustrates the major changes in domestic family life and the social structures of Dartmoor farming folk over the centuries. Event suitable for children age 8+.
