Beamish Museum

Dave recently sent me some pictures from his Beamish Museum trip earlier in the year.  Beamish is a well-known site in County Durham, that describes itself as the Living Museum of the North:

Beamish is a world famous open air museum which brings the history of North East England to life at its 1820s Pockerley, 1900s Town, 1900s Pit Village, 1940s Farm, 1950s Town and 1950s Spain’s Field Farm exhibit areas.

Visitors to the museum meet costumed folk and discover fascinating stories of everyday life in the region through time.

Very much a photo dump….


Trams and buses….


And a short video of the ancient train.  I think Dave dropped the camera at the end!

Next time, some of Allan’s pictures from TINGS.
