Please drop in to Our Farming and Commons Heritage event

  • Venue: Orton Market Hall
  • Date: Friday 15th and Saturday 16th October 2021

We will have fascinating farming heritage displays and memorabilia of the Westmorland Dales farming past to prompt discussion but most importantly we would like to hear your stories, family histories and reminiscence.

Please bring along your photos and any interesting historical documents we can copy. This is a new project lead by Friends of the Lake District and after the event we are planning to record farming and commoning stories, collate and digistise old oral history recordings, interesting documents and memorabilia.
