Summer Club children made an exciting discovery in the school woods..... a large lump of stone! After hours of digging, sweeping and cleaning (sorry about the mud!) some ideas were:
We had found the lost tomb or grave of Margaret Clitherow or Robin Hood.
A dragon lived under the stone.
There were stairs under there that led to the other side of the world.
We carried on today and managed to lift half the stone to reveal an old well (or drain). We did a dropping stone test to discover there was water at the bottom and a long branch was used to measure the depth to about 5 feet.
Now we just have to work out why there's an abandoned well in the school woods.......
