THE TALL TALES OF TIMOTHY THE TORTOISE



In September 2019 school children and forest school participants joined three immortal characters The Constant Consoler, The Taker of Notes & The Digger of Holes on a lantern lit journey across Powderham Estate to celebrate the Tall Tales of Timothy the Tortoise, one of the Estate's most famous residents!

We learned about the extraordinary history of a small creature that lived from the Crimean war right through some of the most momentus events of the 20th century, and through several generations of the families at the Powderham Estate.

Participants made lanterns together to assist the three immortal undertakers in raising Timothy the Tortoise back to life for just one night, and commemorating an extrordinary life.
