Gothic Trip to Bodmin Jail

November 6th, 2020 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | News - (0 Comments)

Photography and English got all Gothic this week with a Year 9 trip to Bodmin Jail and Roche Rock on Wednesday. After reading Susan Hill’s The Woman In Black, it was time to gather some inspiration for our own Gothic writing, so where better to visit than the site of Cornwall’s last hanging. Under the direction of possibly the world’s best Heritage guide, Jess, we were given an view of the dark world of Victorian and Georgian crime and punishment. Photography students used this time to photograph the severe architecture and sinister settings, which will then be used to support reportage work as well as their own Gothic creations. After the jail, Roche Rock provided a perfect spot for further strange stories, intriguing Gothic images, and a packed lunch. Students explored the chapel, generated more vocabulary and ideas, and generally got Gothic. Thanks to all the students for not getting stuck in the stocks or falling of the rock, and thanks to Mrs Diffey and Mrs Green for all their organising! Thank you to Bodmin Jail and to all involved for following strict COVID guidance during this trip.
