We also spotted lots of wintry woodland treats along with learning about Christmas traditions from Medieval times. It was a cold, bright sunny [...]

We have thought about the soldiers who once walked on Main Street... the children who played at the village school... the jobs that they did and the farmland that once surrounded us. [...]
