Take a step back in time to Lark Hill Place, an atmospheric re-creation of a typical northern street during Victorian times.
The street is set at the turn of the last century, although many of the items are older to show development over time. The ambience is set at teatime on a winter’s evening when the street gas lamps have just been lit. The sounds of children playing, horse-drawn carriages and a ‘knocker-upper’ fill the street. Walk down the street and take a peek inside the many shops and houses, including a toy shop, chemist, grocers, a blacksmiths and an artisan’s cottage.
