How Widnes has grown

Date: 27th Mar 2023 @ 9:55pm

As part of our geography unit - How Widnes has grown, we have taken part in a local area walk. Developing our field work skills, we investigating land use in our town centre. 




Later in the week Nicola Lamb from Widnes library came into class to deliver a talk about about how Widnes has changed. She talked specifically about the growth in industry, population growth, and the growing need for Widnes' bridges.

Nicola brought along some interesting artefacts into school to share with us; including soap from the original Gossage factory. Nicola really helped us to understand how and why Widnes has changed and become the town we know today.
