They also have a 1940s wartime home, shop and street. Which reminds me that we have been watching the 1940s House on DVD. If you haven't already seen it you must! My children were enthralled.
Flambards, Helston, Cornwall
Yesterday we all piled into the car and drove the 2 hour journey to Helston in Cornwall. I have a nephew who is working at RNAS Culdrose so it was the perfect excuse for a day at the seaside, not that I ever need an excuse for that. I rolled up my trouser legs and had a dip....(photos to follow...I think not!) and it was beautifully warm and as clear as tap water. Actually, I would be posting some photos from yesterday but I left my camera with my nephew! He's probably got it on Ebay as we speak!! (should you ever read this Rich, I'm only kidding).
Flambards is in Helston and as well as the usual roller coasters, merry go rounds and other theme park rides, they have a wonderful museum of Victorian and Edwardian mock up houses, streets and shops. It's fabulous and well worth a visit.
We didn't go yesterday but it did remind me that I have these lovely photos of the Edwardian corset and clothes shop. The mannequins were stunning (but sadly not for sale).
Could be me at the sewing machine!
What an incredibly waistline!
I'm very happy living in the 21st century but if I had a time machine it would be set to the Edwardian era. My little bit of savings would go along way then!
