On 14th May 2018 a group of 14 year 7 pupils visited Clitheroe Castle. Pupils had to complete a trail using the information boards around the castle soaking up its rich medieval history, building on work they have done on medieval towns and castles. The pupils looked at the castle’s role in the English Civil War and also how Clitheroe developed during the Industrial Revolution. Pupils were blown away by the magnificent views from the top of the castle before viewing the restored pinnacle from the Palace of Westminster. The group then looked at the well first used for water in 1416 and used until the late 1800’s, discussing the problems of water supply and disease. Pupils all agreed that the trip was both enjoyable and educational.
