Ships & Seafarers, Houses & Homes

Venue: Buckler's Hard, Hampshire

Term: Ongoing

Teachers organising a Ships & Seafarers, Houses & Homes tour will see their students take the part of 18th century visitors to the village where ships for Nelson’s navy were built.

Organisers can choose for the emphasis of the visit to be on social history or ship building; and the tours are suitable for both History and Drama students.

Pupils will learn about Lord Nelson, Buckler’s master shipbuilder Henry Adams, the cat-o-nine-tails, and more about life in the 18th century village.

A further highlight will be seeing Nelson’s favourite navy ship, the HMS Agamemnon.
