Despite the horrible weather, the children have had a fun filled day today. We started off early with a ramble around the picturesque countryside, straight after breakfast, which took nearly three hours! We passed abandoned mine shafts, went through deep forests and descended rocky hillsides. As soon as we got back to The Nightingale Centre, we had little time to change into dry clothes before we were treated to a practical history lesson explaining the origins of where we were staying and its importance in the 1st World War. The children learnt lots of interesting facts and really enjoyed it.
