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.
Fixed point 1: View of entrance into the Fort site
Fixed point 2: View of Fort in the distance
Fixed point 3: View of left-hand (south) section of Fort east wall
Fixed point 4: View of tumbled wall at south end
Fixed point 5: View looking back to Fort from river

Our next session takes place at Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth on 15th May.
