  • Im so pleased we chose Cranedale to lead on our fieldwork this year. It was an experience that I just dont think we ourselves could offer in terms of the breadth and depth of study in the short time available. The tutors were excellent - supportive, passionate and friendly; many thanks for providing a really meaningful and engaging fieldwork opportunity!
