Memories of Middleton Hall

This October, we are capturing the memories of the people and communities who have played an integral role in our history.

Middleton Hall was a lived-in family home up until 1966 and local people recall happy memories of growing up here as children. When the Estate was sold to a gravel extraction company in 1966, the Hall and grounds were left to ruin. It is thanks to an intrepid group of skilled and passionate volunteers that the Hall has been restored to what it is today. 

Our project will reach out to people who lived on the Estate and to those who restored it to hear their stories and discover two important eras of our history. Written records will be made by our staff and volunteers at our memories drop-in sessions. However, we need to raise £400 for a professional filming team to record the memories of willing individuals on camera. Two separate videos will be made, one about life at the Hall before 1966 and the second about the restoration of the Hall 1977 - 2010. These videos will then be displayed at the Hall as part of a new exhibition. 

Donations towards this project will be gratefully received. 

 

Our target is to raise £400 by 15th October 2018.

Memories drop-in sessions are on 18th & 27th October 2018, 11am - 2pm. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
