Travelling from Baston in Cambridgeshire students from Kirkstone House School in years two to six visited Hunstanton on Monday with a mission to find out more about the cliffs, the wildlife and the extreme weather experienced over the years.

Welcomed to the Heritage Centre by Brian Holmes, the youngsters were presented with a quiz designed by former teacher John Maiden and whilst all the answers could be found within the centre, some were trickier than others.

During their visit they watched a film about the 1953 floods, examined the fossils on display and learned about the heritage and history of the town.

Moving on to the beach, the students found the wreck of the Sheraton, examined the cliffs, hunted for fossils and compiled lists of the wildlife they encountered.

Brian Holmes said: “It is a pleasure to show schools around the Heritage Centre and share information about the town and its history, especially with a group that are obviously very interested in the subject.”
