STUDENTS from a school in Launceston went through a time machine during one of their recent school trips.

Pupils from St Joseph’s School enjoyed a visit to Lawrence House Pop-Up Museum in the square earlier this week.

The group of students paid a visit to the site in Launceston town centre where they were be transported back in time and invited to learn all about Victorian Cooking.

The group got dressed up in their best Victorian chef outfits, complete with their very own hats and aprons.

With the assistance of museum volunteers, everyone got hands on and had a great fun weighing out ingredients.

Member of Launceston Town Council and chairman of the Lawrence House Museum ‘s management committee Cllr Margaret Young said: “The children had a wonderful time, it is really important that the young people visit the Pop-Up and learn all about our town.”

The Lawrence House Pop-Up Museum opened in the Merchant’s House in Launceston in September 2021 and is now next door at No 13.

The site is open to visitors while works continue to repair its permanent home in the Grade II* National Trust building in Castle Street.
