Spring is nearly here! The birds are singing to each other, the daffs are nearly out, and everyone is finally over that cold they’ve had for the last 6 weeks.
But! Remember last November as the nights were drawing in? We had a great time chasing away the darkness with our lanterns and furnaces on Wincobank Hill as part of the Light up the Hill event.
Volunteer Film maker Martin Currie sent a group of young people off with cameras to record the event, and this is the result of their excellent camera work and Martin’s production skills.
Proof that without darkness there would be no light!
Using the medium of plasticine and lego, the exciting, touching and sometimes tragic history of Wincobank Hill has been brought to life by the young people of Wincobank. Just be thankful that you are not a woolley rhinoceros.
Many people recorded the mysterious goings on up on Wincobank Hillfort last night – soon all will be revealed……
