Adventures in Weardale
|October 1, 2011||Posted by Steve Thompson under News|
We arrived at the wonderful Wearhead Primary School on a lovely sunny day. We had a smallish number pass through our workshops. The next workshop at Wolsingham school was better attended and people participated in the drama and music workshop. With these workshops being so far from my home I stayed overnight in Blanchland. This is quite close to where I grew up so my parents came to visit. My mother reminded me that my Grandmothers family came from Blanchland and were landed gentry at Newbiggin Hall until the lands reverted to the crown when the male line died out – perhaps more on that later. On day two we travelled to the 3rd workshop in Stanhope quite close to the Bonnie Moorhen itself. Click on the “more” link to see all the images.
