Sealed Knot at Kirroughtree Visitor Centre

Turn back the clock a few hundred years and Kirroughtree would have looked very different... almost like it did at the weekend at our Sealed Knot event!

Our events area was transformed into a 17th Century encampment complete with traditional dress, games, food and music.

Over a hundred members from Sealed Knot came to Kirroughtree to bring history alive with guided walks, talks, their living history camp and of course the big battle on Sunday! It was a great weekend with lots of 'have a go' oppotunities for families to find out what life would have been like all those years ago.

Check out our slideshow below where you can see some of the pictures of Sealed Knot we took at the weekend.

A big thank you to all Sealed Knot members who were involved.

Until next time,
