Families rode ponies, explored woodland and took part in an egg and spoon race while visiting the Chiltern Open Air Museum on Bank Holiday weekend.

The museum’s grounds span 45 acres and include willow sculptures and an adventure playground.

It also offers visitors the chance to watch traditional craft demonstrations and see skilled craftspeople in action.

Visitors of all ages took full use of the outdoor museum’s range of attractions on Bank Holiday weekend – staying true to the organisation’s aim to create a living landscape connecting the past and present.

Some of the activities specially put on to celebrate Easter include a bird’s nest trail, Easter craft sessions and the opportunity to visit this year’s first newborn lamb.

The Chiltern Open Air Museum is open from 10am to 5pm on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, and everyday throughout the Easter holidays until April 21.

Standard admission prices for pre-booked tickets are £12 per adult and £9 per child aged between 9 and 16-years-old.
