Thank you to all of the schools who had entered our School Visit Competition for 2016.  We have invited the pupils of any schools who had visited Muncaster Castle, Gardens and the Hawk & Owl Centre during the past year to send us stories or drawings telling us about their visit with us.

The entries we have received have been of a very high standard and we very interesting and entertaining to read.  This made it very hard to decide our winner.  After much consideration we have awarded first place to:


Year 6 – Our Lady and St Patrick’s Primary School


As their prize the students have chosen a 12 month adoption of Nutmeg the Lanner Falcon, one of the birds of prey from the Hawk & Owl Centre.

We have produced a display of the drawings and stories received in the Guard Room of Muncaster Castle. The display will run throughout the school holidays.

We hope that you are able to visit to see the amazing work.
