Anglo Croatian Meeting
This Bilateral Exchange began in February 2017. It involved students from Academy at Shotton Hall and Osnovna Scola Podrute. During the week we spent time both in the Academy at Shotton Hall and at the Malham field centre in Yorkshire.
Students from Posrute and Shotton worked together on a joint project looking at the Tourismand Geography in a Limestone region. We linked the work here with a "mirrored " study in Croatia.
Malham is a small village, in the Pennines, at the southern base of the Yorkshire Dales. It's a pretty place, surrounded by limestone dry-stone walls, & with a stream running right through the middle of the village.
Mentioned in the Domesday book as 'Malgun', Malham has been a settlement for at least a thousand years. Traces of Iron age boundaries are still visible today. One hundred years ago, Malham was a place of mills and mines. Nowadays, hill farms and tourism are the main activities.
