The site The Old Medicine House The Labyrinth
Archaeological dig A course for adults A course for younger students

We care for a Tudor house and an acre of land in the Cheshire countryside that has been inhabited for ten thousand years.

We discover and tell the stories of this ancient place to encourage active engagement with the past that educates young and old to look at their surroundings with new eyes.

In buildings, objects and records, visitors to Blackden meet the people who lived and worked here down the centuries.
