A group of youngsters have been given an insight into the life of a First World War soldier.

Pupils from the Ingoldisthorpe Primary School visited the Dreamy Hollow woodlane site in Bircham Newton, which has a network of restored trenches dating back to the First World War, on Friday as part of their work on the conflict.

Headteacher Keith Twaites said “This is a unique opportunity for the children to experience some real local history. They have been studying life in the trenches. This will certainly help them gain a better understanding.”
