Dales Countryside Museum


The Upper Dales Family History Group will hold another ‘Gathering’ on Saturday, March 24, at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes.  The Gathering is a mixture of presentations by members and guest speakers, with time over a buffet lunch to look around the Museum or use the Research Room, followed by an optional evening meal together. Presentations cover a wide range of topics, from a tale of murder and mayhem to cheese making in Cotherstone, and include the research behind the recent Richmondshire Youth Theatre production ‘Miners of Lead’, the making of Voices from the Land, an exhibition of photographs & recordings of contemporary farming life in the dales, as well as a look at some of the lead mining material in the Museum.

The event is open to everyone and the cost of £15 includes a buffet lunch provided by the Firebox Café, tea and coffee during the day, free parking on site and free entry to the display areas of the Museum. The day starts with coffee from 9.30 am and ends around 5pm.  Full details are at:
