The exhibition arising from Archive Alive runs from April to June 2009 in the Museum of North Craven Life at The Folly, Settle and is a spectacular, interesting, and exciting insight into local history. Examples and extracts of the exhibition are available on the website, notably the narratives from the displays, and some extracts of the music and the poetry readings. These may be found at:
The collection represents communities from Bell Busk to Bentham and from Arncliffe to Tosside and includes posters, photographs, directories and guidebooks. The material covers every aspect of life and landscape in North Craven from geology, archaeology, plants and animals, poetry and prints to the history of churches, mills, schools and business - and much more!
We have appointed Sue Mackay, local teacher and museum curator, to help people to investigate and respond to the archives, hopefully in some novel and exciting ways. Sue will be approaching all sorts of groups across North Craven in the next twelve months to begin exploring the collection and organising a series of public drop in workshops for adults and children. She would love to hear from any groups who would like to access the material and work with her towards the final exhibition.
