Cogges Manor Farm Museum

Witney, Oxfordshire

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

Cogges Manor Farm Museum at Witney, Oxfordshire is a working museum that depicts Oxfordshire rural life in Victorian times. It is set in an historic Manor house and Cotswold stone farm buildings. The animals also are representative of the traditional breeds of farm animals, including cows, sheep, pigs and chickens.

The displays of farm implements and machinery and the regular demonstrations of farm work such as handmilking and buttermaking help bring the displays to life. Visitors can converse with the dairy maids, farm staff and house staff, who are traditionally dressed and going about the daily duties of that era.

The history of the house, parts of which are more than 700 years old, is on show upstairs. In the activities room, children can try on Victorian clothes and play with replica toys and games of the period.

Regular activities include demonstrations of handmilking, feeding the pigs, buttermaking (on most Sunday afternoons) and the work of the Victorian maids in the Manor House.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Further information and Planning Grids or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote the CIN Page Ref at the bottom of the Planning Grid above. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
