Youlgrave Primary School Children on a site visit to Arbor Low

Other Stones - Other Meanings

Other Stones - Other Meanings was a collaboration between the adults of Middleton and Smerrill and the children of Youlgrave Primary School.
Visiting archaeological sites suggested by the adults, the children explored old mines, an ice house, the remains of a pump house, and of course, Batemanís Tomb and Arbor Low. Supported by archaeologist Alice Ullathorne, they recorded their discoveries in note books and with cameras.
Returning to school, the children worked with writer David Fine to produce poems. Sites of Meaning has used some of these words to mark the parish boundary.
