Applied History Visit to Ilkley 2016

Students in Year 11 studying Applied History recently visited the Manor House and White Wells, Ilkley.

The visit enabled the students to compare two historically significant sites for the ‘Heritage Management’ aspect of the course, to be submitted in January 2017.

The Manor House building stands on a Roman fort and is the oldest dwelling-house in Ilkley.  The students were taken on a tour of the building by historian Nike Dixon to learn about its architecture and its social history.

White Wells is a spa bath situated on Ilkley Moor which was built c1700 as an open air spa bath. The students viewed the only surviving single plunge pool inside the White Wells Spa Cottage.

Well done to our students.
