Ford Green Hall, Stoke-on-Trent
Ford Green Hall was built in 1624 for Hugh Ford and the Ford family lived there Hall for nearly 200 years. Mr Ford was a yeoman dairy farmer and owned 36 acres of land.
In the 19th century after the Ford family left, the status of the house declined and it was divided into 3 and later 4 cottages. The building is now owned and run by a charitable company led by volunteers and works closely with Stoke-on-Trent City Council.

Meet the household
We are a small but nationally based interpretation group, covering Tudor and Stuart domestic life. Founded in 1985, we have been recreating historic families in first person, to give visitors of historic houses an educational and memorable visit.
Created with WebSite X5

We specialise in turning an old house into a home, bringing a Tudor or Stuart family to life, to fully interact with your visitors.
We can also offer a range of variations around the same period, depending on what you have available.
We are always keen for new people to come and join us. As we recreate domestic life, we're open to all. No previous experience or in depth knowledge is required. The 'Workshop' in our title is all about training our members.
