Manor Farm

Manor Farm is between Portsmouth and Southampton and is run as a public education/tourist attraction. it has the classic "eighteenth century" u-shape of farm buildings with animal pens in the middle, some very old wooden construction buildings where the wall has been bricked in later (a process called "nogging"), hipped and half-hipped roofs that would originally have been thatched, and what looks from here like a fifteenth century house at the back.

It looks like Shire horse in the front of the pic.
