Iron Age houses

Experience iron age living

Herd Farm in collaboration with Forest School Plus can provide outdoor learning experiences to enhance your pupils’ knowledge, understanding and wellbeing.

Herd Farm is home to three full-sized replica Iron Age roundhouses. This exciting setting is conducive to understanding and appreciating the challenges of prehistoric life and the knowledge, skills and ingenuity that were required to survive over 2,000 years ago in Britain.
