Year 3 have been exploring the history of Marlborough by visiting The Merchant’s House and having a tour of the High Street hunting for the blue plaques.
We got to try a traditional biscuit flavoured with rose water. Some of us loved them and others preferred a malted milk!
We were amazed at how large The Merchant’s House was and how well restored it had been to get it back to how it was when Thomas Bayly (a silk merchant) lived there.
We all enjoyed our morning and learnt lots about our town’s history.
Evie said, “It was amazing and I really liked the decorations, particularly the art work.”
Peter added, “The beds were made of rope and had mattresses on them. It felt really comfortable when we sat on them – I want one in my house!”
