More Dairy Days volunteers trained

We have had a busy week starting with five more local people trained in the art of oral history recording by Tracy Craggs and now all set to interview people around Wensleydale – one or two already had people lined up including a woman who was a Land Army girl and several retired farmers.

The next day we had our first Archaeological Surveying Training day led by our Community Heritage Officer Douglas Mitcham. Six people enjoyed a day studying the theory and practice of surveying using the plane table and also tape and offset techniques, both easy for community groups to undertake as they don’t require expensive equipment. Read more about it on our main blog ‘Lumps seen in Upper Wensleydale.’

We have another archaeological survey training day lined up on 26 September. Contact Douglas Mitcham on 01969 652353 to book a place.
