Blist Hill

The main purpose of our visit to Blist Hill was to gather information about the jobs people did in the late Victorian era.  It was important for us to find out what it was like to live in that era, which meant we needed to familiarise ourselves with the domestic arrangements, shopping habits, transport links and methods and even the methods of communication. It was an extremely worthwhile trip because the children managed to get the opportunity to sense what life was like during this era.
