The first session took place on 1st May at Burgh Castle Fort. Participants worked with creative facilitator Ian Brownlie and learnt about the photographic survey technique which will be used to monitor a leaning section of the wall.

Participants also took their first set of fixed point photos in various locations around the site. This will be repeated monthly during the project.
