Helen Bainbridge, ‘A Little Country in Itself – Ingilby and Hartley’s Swaledale’.
This lecture is part of the celebrations connected with the 50th anniversary of the publication of Marie Hartley and Joan Ingilby’s Life and Tradition in the Dales (1968). It is based on an unpublished history of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale after the lead mines closed, donated to the Museum Archive. The social and economic history of the Dales revealed in this research will be compared with the material presented in Life and Tradition to capture a fuller picture of this overlooked but crucially important period in our local history.
7.30pm Friends of the Museum £4/non-members £5 Advance booking advisable.
