The start of the new term has taken the Year 11 students from school to Preston Montford Field Studies Centre. This is close to Shrewsbury about three hours from Cambridgeshire. After a lot of traffic caused by various issues, we had a shorter time in Ludlow than hoped, so it was a bit of a rush job around the town to explore the impact of the town's focus on food. We had just missed the food festival by a few days as it was last weekend, and brought thousands of people to the town, causing the inevitable travel chaos.
On the way back, we took some creative detours in the coach to avoid further traffic, and had a productive day in the end. More to come on the idea of food tourism in future blog posts.
