SHEFFIELD Hallam MP Nick Clegg made history in the city when he opened his first replica Iron Age roundhouse!
The Lib Dem leader visited a prehistoric project at St Wilfrid’s RC Primary in Millhouses where he saw the structure that was built by the pupils with the help of volunteers from Heeley City Farm and Sheffield University and is now used as an outdoor classroom for environmental studies.
“The work was only just completed before Nick arrived but he was very impressed with what he saw – he said they didn’t do things like this when he was at school,” said headteacher Barbara Jarrett.
The Deputy Prime Minster also saw smelting work with a craftsman creating an iron hinge for the house’s door.
“It’s been a brilliant project and we are expanding our environmental work with our refurbished school pond and a forest school project,” added the headteacher.
