King's Lynn and West Norfolk

Since our pilot projects in the area around Downham Market, looking at and exhibiting the local heritage of the Fenland, we have worked with a further 11 schools and objects from two major regions of the world. Interests have varied tremendously with projects ranging across historical mapping, local environment, archaeology, waterways, rural industry, folklore and farming. Northwold children explored local chalk architecture and recognised their responsibility for their own culture, those at Feltwell demonstrated Molly dancing. We are now ready to develop some of these ideas further, widening participation among different communities.
