This completes a project, two years in the planning since Patrick Gale invited us to consider working with NCBF. It began with a first in-school session at Sir James Smiths and a first field trip to Launceston Castle. One of the participants wrote this:

It was as if my imagination filled in the missing blanks; who?what?when?. The atmosphere was amazing and it felt very natural to be writing here. I really enjoyed the free writing time we had to start our stories as well.

Thanks to Lisa Cooper at NCBF, Jennifer McCracken at English Heritage, Chris Eames at Sir James Smiths Camelford, and Jay Snashall & Ciera Harvey at Newquay Tretherras.
