We are an educational charity, based in a Tudor house, on a patch of land in the Cheshire countryside that has been inhabited for ten thousand years.

We discover and tell the stories of this ancient place to encourage active engagement with the past that enables young and old to look at their surroundings with new eyes.

In buildings, objects and records, visitors to Blackden meet the people who lived and worked here down the centuries.
