Cosmeston Medieval Village

During the development of Cosmeston Lakes Country Park in 1978, excavations uncovered the remains of a community over 600 years old, and so began a unique archaeological project to restore the village of Cosmeston. The Medieval Village seen today is fully accessible to visitors and set in the year 1350. It was a fascinating time in history as the village had been given a new boost of life by the de Caversham family.  The Medieval Village is wheelchair friendly and open 7 days per week.
