St Margaret's Bay Guided Walk

Orchid Walk

Applicant: Dover Smart Project

Project: St Margaret's Bay Guided Walk Pilot Project

Grant award: £1000

This educational project based on local historic and ecological themes, worked in partnership with St. Margaret's-at-Cliffe Primary School and St. Margaret's History Society. The children took part in a walk from the lighthouse to the White Cliffs Visitors Centre. They learnt about the history of the area and gained a greater appreciation of the unique character of the landscape. The children then produced a map and related work (e.g. pictures, written descriptions of the walk, photographs etc). This map and linked work was displayed in My Gallery in Dover and at the school.

The mapping and related work helped the children to learn how to interpret their local landscape features, plants, animals and their habitats and built and cultural heritage.
