Pitchforks and Pikestaffs at Dorchester

Lizzie and I had a lovely time at the Medieval Fair today, I can still smell the woodsmoke on my clothes from all the encampment fires. The variety of tents was amazing we are really tempted ! They were jousting when we arrived.
There were lots of Artisans , we were really interested in the lady spinning wool that she had dyed with natural plant dyes , they were all very willing to share their expertise.
We were there at lunchtime and the food they had prepared was wonderful, we had to make do with a Hog Roast but it was good. One tent was licenced to cook and was making Dorset apple griddle cakes , they were simply delicious with our coffee.
