On Sunday 17th March, the boarders travelled to the world famous Beamish open air museum. Beamish tells the story of life in a coal mining town in the North East of England in 1913. They spent time with a very scary dentist, visited a bank and a Masonic hall and a school. The boarders joined in a march by the suffragettes, where Shameek had a close encounter with a 1913 police officer. They spent time in a pit village, to see how coal miners lived in the 1900s.They watch a very amusing live colliery band performing with the support of a clog dancer. Next they visited a working farm, where a calf had just been born, along with some lambs.
A ride on a tram, followed by an open top bus tour ended another fabulous day out for the boarders.
