Excitement at the pencil museum

On our road trip (up through England and into Scotland), we stopped off at the Cumberland Pencil Museum where they make Derwent pencils. I had a great time! I learnt how pencils are made and the history of them. Unfortunately, I lost the photos I took of the world’s longest coloured pencil but the photos I do have are in their own set on my flickr page.
