Local History Challenge

During our historical village walk we noticed a hoist on the side of one of the old warehouse buildings. This was once used to unload ships that docked in Newnham.
Our challenge was to work in teams to make a model hoist that could be used to unload ships. We tried to make a mechanism that used a level, pendulum or rotating action.
Here are our designs.
