In Victorian Farm, a specialist team – Ruth Goodman, Peter Ginn and Alex Langlands – devoted a year of their lives to re-creating life in a 19th century rural environment in and around the Acton Scott Estate in Shopshire. Now they return to celebrate a Victorian Farm Christmas - but hold that thought. Before the celebration there is work to be done. In order for horses to be shod, the entire Blacksmith’s Forge has to be rebuilt with new clay bricks – which need making - and an old bellows to get pumping. There’s Christmas food and festivities to prepare from 1850s mincemeat to butter, bread, Christmas puddings and a multi-bird Christmas pie. There are gifts to be made, ribbons to be dyed, and old fashioned remedies to be prepared for what ails them.Yes, the clocks have been turned back once again as Ruth, Peter and Alex work long hard hours to uncover the mystery and the magic of what will become a Victorian Farm Christmas.
