Birch at Coldharbour Mill Museum

Birch Class had a wonderful learning experience this week when they were fortunate enough to visit Coldharbour Mill Museum in Uffculme.

They learnt firsthand what it would have been like for children in Victorian times who would have had to have worked in the mill for 12 hours a day, six days a week.

Mr Robson, the factory manager, was very imposing and took no nonsense from his workers.  He gave our children a work trial to see if they were tough enough to be employed and willing to adhere to the strict rules and hazardous work conditions.
