An old copper kettle and iron frying pan were two of the interesting household items visitors took to Swineshead Primary School in 1990.

Romany gypsy Mr Gordon Boswell and his wife Margaret visited the school and spoke about the magic of life on the road in a horse-drawn waggon. He showed them pictures taken during their 250-mile trip to Appleby Horse Fair.
