#ScrapbookOutdoors Week 5: Stories

A recap of our favourite photos from #ScrapbookOutdoors Week 5

For #NationalStoryTellingWeek, we sent you all out on a hunt for history, myths and legends with our theme of ‘Places with a story’. You responded with some weird and wonderful locations, some famous stories and some more personal stories. Here are our favourite photos from week 5.
