The third Linton Children’s Book Festival took place between the 1st and 9th of May 2010. Lintonians who use the High Street will not have failed to notice the “My Favourite Book” posters adorning the lampposts in the weeks leading up to the Festival.
The Festival began with a Children’s History Walk on Saturday, 1st May. Andrew Clark and Simon Holden led the walk between Symonds House and the old railway station. They retraced the steps of a Victorian workhouse outing that took place in 1872. The children found out about the workhouse and the daily life of the people who lived there. At the station, they were able to imagine the busy scene as the steam train drew in to take the workhouse children to the seaside.
