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.
