Puddles!

Thursday, April 22nd, 2021

In this latest episode, the Unexpected duo, James and Sam, don their wellies and splash around in the past to jump into the unexpected history of PUDDLES! Which is all about the history of child the play, the historical derivation of nursery rhymes, Sir Walter Ralegh (the romantic puddle-coverer), and the famous children’s author and illustrator Shirley Hughes; it’s also all about the Cornish mining landscape, pumping water out of mines to avoid puddles connected to the Cornish engineer Richard Trevithick, and of course the Taj Mahal. Who knew!
