Historic Chilterns Farm

View of Rossway Granary and Traditional Chilterns Farm - Chiltern Open Air Museum

A working farm, using historic buildings, skills and machinery

  • The Museum runs a small working Chilterns farm, demonstrating and preserving traditional farming techniques and machinery.
  • The Museum’s farm buildings are laid out and used as a classic Chilterns farmstead that might have formed the heart of a local farm from 1800 to 1950.
  • The farm buildings include a granary from Rossway, a big threshing barn from Chalfont-St-Peter which houses our restored threshing machine, a stable and cart shed from Marsworth, and a cattle byre from Borehamwood.
  • The farm is regularly used for filming and has been used for filming Downton Abbey and The Suspicions of Mr Whicher.
