A group of 30 excited students from the West Midlands, through the Gifted and Talented Partnership joined together for our first ever Edge Hill Battlefield tour.  The youngsters were completely absorbed by the stories and accounts of the battle.  After walking the battlefield, complete with musketry displays and discovering the graves of some of the fallen, they finished the tour tired but totally and completely inspired.  No doubt this talented bunch will have had plenty of stimuli to produce some astounding pieces of written work, which we hope to add to the site soon.
