To help you familiarise yourself with the site before you visit, and to showcase the upstairs of the cottage to those who are not comfortable or able to climb the ladder we have worked with the University of Lincoln to share with you a digital version of our cottage. We have also filled this page full of links to digital activities and resources to help you learn more about Mrs Smith and cottage.
