This Education Pack was created by Marple Locks Heritage Society, a community group that operated from 2004 to 2016 but is now disbanded. It was aimed at pupils in Key Stage Two and activities were designed to meet aspects of the National Curriculum for this age group at that time.
The society's objective was:
"To make special efforts to encourage children from the local primary schools and other youth groups to take an interest in the locks; to help them understand its value in the environment and to the community in the belief that they may continue the work of ‘The Society’ in future."
Each activity/lesson plan had with it the relevant references to link it to programmes of study in the National Curriculum. Some of the links no longer works and the pack may not meet modern requirements but is available to local schools on request via the Marple Website Contact Form.
