Year 5 arrived at the Youth Hostel this afternoon, after spending the morning at Magpie Mine. They dumped their bags and head off up the hill towards Mompesson's well. The well, along with the boundary stone was used by the villagers of Eyam to exchange money for food with other villages during the Plague. The children listen to a story called ‘The Kiss of Death’ by Malcom Rose and made a remarkable discovery in the stream there.
Afterwards, they headed back to the Youth Hostel for their tea and classroom activities.
