Northgate High School, Ipswich: "I wanted to drop you a quick note to say how fantastic the trip to Landguard Fort was and especially your very informative and extensive guided talk with the students. It was a real honour to be taken around the site - and some extra bits - buy someone so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The students were able to get some wonderful photos and they were all so excited to go off and do drawings and collect imagery for study back in the studio. We were so lucky that it was such a glorious day and the contrast of the clouds with the imposing buildings are a real treat".
