Our visit to Milestones in Basingstoke was well received. It is a living history museum and is located inside a large warehouse and depicts streets of shops and trades set out in past times. There are also exhibitions showing the progress through time. We were also entertained by staff showing how people coped through the war years in a comical way. Some of us were well aware of these inventive ideas and “make do and mend” as we were children during the war.
