We enjoyed exploring our knowledge and understanding of the history and heritage of our local area, the city of Sunderland and the role played by Galley’s Gill in helping to shape the activities and industry that took place in the region.

By drawing out maps we were able to discuss in small groups and as a class the way in which the landscape shapes us as we also shape it!

Studying old maps helped us to see how the land use has changed over the years!
