The history of Nailsea has captured the imaginations of children from St Francis Primary School.
Pupils have been learning about important events in the town’s history as part of their school studies.
They have also learnt about evacuees who visited the town during the war.
A school spokesman said: “St Francis School pupils have been looking at the history of Nailsea and particularly the use of tithe barn.
“We were lucky enough to visit the tithe barn and experience life as an evacuee coming to Nailsea.

“We got to make rock cakes using war time rations, explore World War Two artefacts, wrote post cards home using ink pens and looked at historical maps of Nailsea.
