A team of historians, experts, and volunteers restore 500-year-old Avebury Manor in Wiltshire as a place to touch, experience and enjoy. Hosted by Penelope Keith and Paul Martin.

Presented by Penelope Keith and Paul Martin, The Manor Reborn sees a team of historians, experts and volunteers reinterpreting 500-year-old Avebury Manor in Wiltshire, putting the country house in to a national and historic perspective.

From the age of Elizabeth I through to the eve of the Second World War - and taking inspiration from other houses across the country - the series and project will reflect on the story of Britain across five centuries, exploring a wide range of craft and furniture-making skills and revealing the invention of 'the home'.

The house will be restored as an immersive experience - it will be one of only a few National Trust properties open to the public where they can touch, sit on and enjoy all aspects of the house.
