Behind the scenes..... Not many people get to meet a proper real life rake maker... But here in the costume department we meet and clothe everyone! Here is Mr Steve Tomlin... Find him at the agricultural show from now until Sunday... Ask him about how important scythes and rakes were and still are, particularly for wildflower meadows...He's the expert... @stevetomlincrafts #traditionalruralcrafts #wildflowermeadows #costumebeamish #beamishcostume #ruralcrafts #neengland #conservation

Behind the scenes.... We are busy bees this morning preparing our external exhibitors for the agricultural show .... but Judith 'Beekeeper' Wallace even more so.... She has brought approx. 1,200 little female helpers who, very helpfully have all brought their packed lunches with them in the form of honey! Is it nearly lunchtime? #beamishcostume #costumebeamish #historicalcostume #beekeeping #beekeeper #countydurham #neengland
