A future generation will learn about what Morpeth was like in 2016 thanks to a group of pupils.

Children from Chantry Middle School and Technology College recently visited Barratt Homes North East’s South Fields development on the edge of the town to bury a time capsule.

They have spent the last few weeks drawing pictures and collecting photographs, as well as writing about the features of their local area, to give a piece of history to whoever finds it in the future.

Head of school Steven Johnson said: “The children felt very privileged to be asked to contribute to the time capsule buried at South Fields.”
