WORK/PLAY

This is the section where we look back at the everyday life of Marden in the past. At the present this section is under developed. However we can look at two of the businesses which thrived here: the sawmill and the forges.

The growing, harvesting and drying of hops was once a very significant part of the farming calendar and of village life in general, so we look at that in some detail. Fruit growing was and still is important to Marden and it was here that the National Fruit Show was instigated.

We hope to add many more screens to this section in time.
