This series of short films takes a very personal view of how life has changed in the village of Cawston, Norfolk, UK within living memory. Village residents were invited to record reminiscences and share their photos of past times. A team of youngsters from Cawston Primary then chose the funniest stories to illustrate through cut out animations. The team also visited key historical sites, such as the Cawston Duel Stone and the Old Water Tower. Take a look Behind the Scenes to learn more about how the films were made. Our Research Links page will lead to you to other Norfolk local history resources. Find out more >
