A school in Whittlesey welcomed Kings Dyke Brickworks to learn more about the town’s community and industrial heritage.

Paul Fitzjohn, plant manager at Kings Dyke, spoke to year two pupils at Park Lane Primary School about the process of brickmaking as part of their street detectives topic.

After the talk, pupils wrote letters thanking Mr Fitzjohn for his time as well as showing off what they learned.

Mr Fitzjohn said: "I hope the information they learned has stayed with them and will continue to inform their learning, and perhaps even their future careers."

Alison Prince, year two teacher at Park Lane Primary School, said: "Everyone thoroughly enjoyed Paul's visit and it is always great to have visitors in to share their expertise with the children.
