The Corner, Hall, Church and the School


This unit was carried out as an inquiry, looking into our local area. Our area is unique in that we have these community facilities right beside our school - and the three places of the hall, church and the school are all that make visitors recognise our area as there is no village. Five Forks relates to the roads beside these places, however there are actually only four recognisable roads, with the fifth 'fork' being a paper road.
