A street in the Shambles Victorian Village, Newent, Gloucestershire

 

The Shambles is a collection of Victorian buildings - cottages, houses, alleyways, streets, courtyards, shops and workshops, housing one of the largest collections of everyday Victoriana in the country!

 

 

The Shambles Victorian Village:
Cobbled streets and alleys to wander round. Over 80 shops and shop windows to peer into: there is a Policeman keeping an eye on things,

A cottage in the Shambles Victorian Village, Newent, Gloucestershire

 

Life as it was in 1890's (right in the middle of Victorian times) - almost 100 windows to peer into, and thousands of Victorian objects to see! About an acre to explore!

A fantastic photographers studio in a conservatory - all manner of stuffed animals in the taxidermists workshop, the Chapel just ready for a service, two old men having a yarn over a pint in the gas-lit beer cellar……....a music shop, pawnbroker, post office, butcher, grocer, solicitor, bookdealer, tobacconist, printer, wheelwright, carpenter, corn-merchant, blacksmith………...we could go on!

Not to mention the houses and cottages from the widow's hovel and simple gardener's cottage, to the well-to-do draper's four storey house.

The Shambles is as a small country town or village would have been in about 1890 - with a 'lived in' feel - with each room looking as if the people had just popped out for a minute.

Children love climbing up to the attics and down into the musty cellars. Adults enjoy the 'how it used to be' feel. Very exciting for the youngsters to guess what's round the next corner, and very nostalgic for the not so young.
