Vernacular Buildings: Hawes and a Lead Mines talk
July 25 @ 09:30 - 17:00
A walk around the vernacular builds of Hawes, followed by a talk on the latter day explorations of Dales Lead Mines.
The talk will be at The Dales Countryside Museum, Station Yard, Hawes, DL8 3NT. Dave Carlisle will talk about “Woolies, Wetsuits and Waterwheel – over 50 yrs of the Earby Mining Research Group”.
The talk is at 2:00pm and Group rates apply: £3.80 or £3.30 for concessions which includes entry to the museum (normally £4.80 alone) which certainly will be of interest, as the museum has a lot of objects that were discovered and rescued by this group, including the Providence Mine waterwheel from Kettlewell.
In the morning, members may like to look around Hawes. Maybe to visit the Cheese Making Creamery, Ropemakers, Dales Countryside Museum or have a look at the shops before getting some lunch. Of interest to some will be a Quakers burial ground which is situated on the main road virtually next to the Museum Station Car Park in the direction of the town centre.
A minibus will leave Grassington Colvend Car Park at 09:30am and cost £10 for members. Pick-ups can be arranged up Wharfedale if required.
For those travelling by car, the car park charges at the museum is £4.50 for all day or £2.50 for two hours. There is other limited parking in the town and at the Creamery.
We will meet outside the Museum at 01:45pm for the Talk.
Members should let the organiser know if they would like to go.
