DENT AND SEDBERGH ORAL HISTORY SOCIETY

NEW: Oral History Publication

Telling it like it was:
Dent, Sedbergh and district in living memory
by
Anthea Boulton and Veronica Whymant

 

What is the project about

We record interviews with people in Dent and Sedbergh to find out about the changes that have happened to our communities within living memory. What did it feel like to go from horses to tractors, oil lamps to electric light, bikes to motorcars or clogs to trainers? We want to hear from men and women of all ages, people living traditional dales' lives and those involved in newer undertakings.


How will interviews be used?

The aim of the project is to record memories so that people now and in the future will better understand what life was like in our area in the twentieth century.

Copies of recorded interviews, with written transcripts, are stored at Kendal Library, where they are available to the public and also at
THE HISTORY OFFICE, Sedbergh Community Office where anyone is welcome to come in and listen to the recordings at the touch of a button. With the agreement of interviewees, transcripts and interviews may in future be made available on the internet. Parts of interviews may be included in talks or exhibitions or published in a book. The project is non-profit-making and any proceeds over and above costs will be given back to the communities in Dent and Sedbergh.
