1 .Welcome to the Fiddy Working Heritage Farm.
2 .This open-air museum gives you the experience of agriculture and rural life in the English countryside at the end of the nineteenth century.
3 .So you'll see a typical farm of that period, and like me, all the staff are dressed in clothes of that time.
1 .I must give you some advice and safety tips before we go any further.
2 .As it's a working farm, please don't frighten or injure the animals.
3 .We have a lot here, and many of them are breeds that are now quite rare.
1 .And do stay at a safe distance from the tools: some of them have sharp points which can be pretty dangerous, so please don't touch them.
2 .We don't want any accidents, do we?
1 .The ground is very uneven, and you might slip if you're wearing sandals so I'm glad to see you're all wearing shoes - we always advise people to do that.
1 .Now, children of all ages are very welcome here, and usually even very young children love the ducks and lambs, so do bring them along next time you come.
1 .I don't think any of you have brought dogs with you, but in case you have.
2 .I'm afraid they'll have to stay in the car park, unless they're guide dogs.
3 .I'm sure you'll understand that they could cause a lot of problems on a farm.
1 .Now let me give you some idea of the layout of the farm.
2 .The building where you bought your tickets is the New Barn, immediately to your right, and we're now at the beginning of the main path to the farmland - and of course the car park is on your left.
3 .The scarecrow you can see in the car park in the corner, beside the main path, is a traditional figure for keeping the birds away from crops, but our scarecrow is a permanent sculpture.
4 .lt's taller than a human being, so you can see it from quite a distance.
1 .If you look ahead of you, you'll see a maze.
2 .It's opposite the New Barn, beside the side path that branches off to the right just over there.
3 .The maze is made out of hedges which are too tall for young children to see over them, but it's quite small, so you can't get lost in it!
1 .Now, can you see the bridge crossing the fish pool further up the main path?
2 .If you want to go to the café, go towards the bridge and turn right just before it.
3 .Walk along the side path and the café's on the first bend you come to.
4 .The building was originally the schoolhouse, and it's well over a hundred years old.
1 .As you may know, we run skills workshops here, where you can learn traditional crafts like woodwork and basket-making.
2 .You can see examples of the work, and talk to someone about the courses, in the Black Barn.
3 .If you take the side path to the right, here, just by the New Barn, you'll come to the Black Barn just where the path first bends.
1 .Now I mustn't forget to tell you about picnicking, as I can see some of you have brought your lunch with you.
2 .You can picnic in the field, though do clear up behind you, of course.
3 .Or if you'd prefer a covered picnic area, there's one near the farmyard: just after you cross the bridge, there's a covered picnic spot on the right.
1 .And the last thing to mention is Fiddy House itself.
2 .From here you can cross the bridge then walk along the footpath through the field to the left of the farmyard.
3 .That goes to the house, and it'll give you a lovely view of it.
4 .It's certainly worth a few photographs, but as it's a private home, I'm afraid you can't go inside.
1 .Right. Well, if you're all ready, we'll set off on our tour of the farm.
