Trip to Brihmam Rocks and Knaresborough
On the 30th of September, our students went on a trip to Brimham Rocks and Knaresborough. The fifteen students left the College at 8.30 for 1.5 hour journey to Brimham Rocks.
Once they got there, they were able to admire the weird and wonderful shapes of the rocks. Some looked like animals, e.g. elephants, bears, others like mushrooms, all of which owe their shapes to erosion.
After a 2-hour walk the students headed to Knaresborough which is famous for being Mother Shipton's birthplace. She is England's most famous prophetess and most of her prophecies proved to be accurate. The students visited Mother Shipton's Cave and observed the strange phenomenon at the petrifying well which changes objects into stone in only 3 months!
They also made a wish at the wishing well of good fortune while holding a coin in their right hand and throwing it into the well.
Afterwards they were taken on a tour of the museum and gift shop. They finished the day walking up to Knaresborough castle and relaxing before the walk back to the coach!
At the end of the trip, they were really tired but enjoyed this fabulous sunny day!
I had so much fun on the trip. It was amazing, the weather was lovely and I especially liked the shapes of the rocks at Brihmam Rocks, especially the dancing bear! The group was friendly and we took beautiful pictures.
The trip was very good, the place very nice and the weather was good. I really enjoyed this trip and I hope we will go on another trip soon.
