THE MAIL reported that a farm was able to time travel back more than one hundred years.

Alex Sharphouse and Charlotte White are holding a trial open day at their Victorian-themed Old Hall Farm in Bouth on Saturday.

If all goes well the couple hopes to complete restoration work at the once dilapidated 18th century holding which they brought 18 months ago and develop it into a fully-fledged tourist attraction.

The pair promise to take visitors in a time machine to the age of Queen Victoria.

And the 60-ace Lakeland farm is not just for show - it's a genuine 19th century-like recreation which the pair are developing to run as a real-life farm that can support their animals.

Mr Sharphouse said: "It is quiet unique because you won't really see it anywhere else. You may see something similar at the occasional steam rally, but this is real - it's not for show, we're doing it feed our animals."

The couple is using traditional breeds of cattle and pigs after bringing in three Hereford heifer calves and a Gloucester Old Spots pig, which has eight piglets.

In addition, they have residents shire horse, Ben, pulling carts and working the fields. Visitors on Saturday will see how the couple use a traditional steam powered thrashing machine.
