Chiltern Open Air Museum

It was the May Day Bank Holiday and we visited the Chiltern Open Air Museum for their “May Day Merriment” weekend.  We attended this event last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, so we decided to go again.  The Suffolk Free Company were again providing a Tudor re-enactment, with period music from Myal Pyper (pictured above).  In addition, the museum has a collection of re-erected historic buildings.
