Memoirs of a Swaledale Woman

The Keld Resource Centre, Keld
Richmond, North Yorkshire DL11 6LJ United Kingdom

In 1984, Maggie-Jo Chapman, a local Swaledale resident, was interviewed.  She described what life was like growing up on a remote hill farm on Oxnop Pass in the early 1900s.  She also told the interviewer about her school days and her home life, including farming, cheesemaking and hay timing.  The talk will be given in her own word, to give an added personal connection to Maggie-Jo.

Afternoon teas will be served afterwards.
