School Trips @ Edsential
Burwardsley has its own replica Iron Age Celtic Roundhouse, enabling pupils to learn about the culture, art and farming of the period. Pupils can gain experience of wattle and daub construction, making clay pots, string making, corn grinding, bread making and fire lighting. They can experience storytelling sessions relating to the period and the local environment.
Other areas of study at Burwardsley could include den building within Willow Hill woods, environmental art, pond dipping, river studies and nature walks to the source of the river Weaver.
Other local attractions include the Cheshire Candle workshops and the Cheshire Ice Cream farm.
There is 1 pond within the grounds, an adventurous playground and a large grassed playing field.
