Another trip to Beamish Museum today. What a beautiful warm day it has been here. As usual lots going in. We listened to an ex miner telling us what it would be like to work in a a mine in the early 1900's and also told us about the important role pit ponies played. We also found a new path to walk along that we'd never seen before.
We were talking to man who is a Friend of Beamish and he was telling us that on Thursday the work starts to create a 1950's town. It will have council houses, prefabs, a cinema, coffee bar, toy shop etc. Should be good.
I have enclosed a couple of extras from the day.
