Researchers...to bring Wensleydale Railway's Leeming Bar Station House roaring back to life in the 1920s
The Wensleydale Railway has received lottery funding to renovate the Leeming Bar Station House into a living heritage museum and education centre. We're taking our visitors back to 1925 and we need historical researchers and recorders to help us find the fine details that will really count towards making our visitor experience real. If you're interested in researching kitchenalia and clothes, post room equipment and Station Master's parlour paraphernalia, waiting room adverts and wash room accessories, then you'll be helping us bring the station back to life. We're also looking for those who can interview older people with long memories for our Reminiscence project.
We will offer full training but if you can bring an enquiring mind and an interest in this period of history, then you'll be making a great start. You might be wanting to add research and recording skills for a Further Education application or for CDP purposes, or you might just enjoy being part of a lively, like-minded team. For those interested in Reminiscence, people-facing skills or some experience with dementia patients might be something we can learn from you.
