Lost Village

The Lost Village of Aldersley Juction

The lost hotel

All that remains of the lost hotel

So much inspiration! So little time! We spent a week with children at theĀ Wildside Activity Centre in Wolverhampton exploring the Lost Village of Aldersley – once a bustling canal junction with a hotel and tollhouse, now a quiet backwater.

The old hotel at Aldersley Junction

On our project pageĀ Lost Village of Aldersley you can read our poems, see the wonderful story animation the children made with Claire, and find out more about drama work with Pyn.

Here’s a snippet…

Tick tock, dandelion clock by Shannon, Lucy and Fi

Tick tock, tick tock,
Dandelion clock.
Through the portal leaping back into the past.
Old woman becomes young again as time flies backwards into time,
Tree back to shoot, back to seed,
Swan back to ugly duckling, back to egg,
Giant city shrinks back to village,
Road back to muddy track.

Tick tock, tick tock,
Dandelion clock,
Tick tock, tick tock.
