November Club and Year 3 pupils from St Robert's RC First School, Oldgate, created a very special heritage trail around Morpeth town centre as part of Heritage Open Days 2011. Inspired by archival material about visits to Morpeth by the Lord Sanger and Sons Circus, they gathered memories, created new ones, and lost some very precious cargo along the way!
