Countryside Live – Ledston Estate

Thanks to continued support from the Wheler Foundation, the 11th Countryside Live North event on the Ledston Estate, near Castleford in West Yorkshire, took place on Wed 18 and Thurs 19 May 2016.

Enabling more children to benefit from a valuable Learning Outside the Classroom experience.

Being near the M62, M1 and just off the A1, the Ledston Estate is in a prime position to attract Yorkshire schools.

I do and I understand
