Wartime at Thwaite Watermill
What did the Horne family of Thwaite Watermill do to help the war effort? Become an evacuee from Leeds for the day and investigate why putty production was so important for the mill in the Second World War. Find out about the Horne family, use maths to weigh out a week’s ration and explore the island to see how you could make it go further, and use artefacts as historical evidence.
*Please note that this workshop is restricted to one class per session of up to 30 pupils at a time.
