    The Rural Life Centre is an entirely private collection, assembled by Mr & Mrs Henry Jackson and run by a charitable trust. It is pleasantly distributed over ten acres of field, woodland and barns, and comprises a large number of implements and devices marking over 150 years of farming. Many aspects of village and rural life are also displayed in realistic individual settings and include:

  • Farming through the seasons.
  • Local hop growing.
  • Tools and crafts allied to country industries and needs.
  • Social history of village life from the 1800s - school, domestic, trades and others. A new display featuring an old fashioned rural post office and village inn (part of "The Mallinson Collection" formerly on show in Selborne).
