Tales from the Land of Oak & Iron are locally written stories relating to two heritage sites; Derwentcote Steel Furnace and Chopwell Wood.

These wonderful stories were written to help engage Key Stage 1 children who may find some of the topic difficult to relate to and can help introduce new themes such as; natural heritage, industrial heritage and different job roles workers and children had locally.

The stories were commissioned by Land of Oak & Iron and written by  Pat Renton and illustrated by Graham Blake.

With special thanks to Greenside Primary School and  St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School.
