29th March 2018, 10:00am – 1:00pm
Starting at Liverton Mines we will take a circular walk exploring memories of childhood adventure and exploration around Liverton Mines and Clarkson’s Wood through oral history recordings. Discover the use of tin bath boats, experiences of playing on the shaleys, the fear of the gamekeeper, where the best birds nests were and adventures at the dumps. Changes to the local scenery will be explored through archive photos and maps. Participants will be tasked with recording wildlife seen and sharing their own memories of childhood adventures.
Please dress warmly and appropriately for being outdoors in the winter and wear appropriate footwear. Footpaths may be wet and muddy and certain sections are very steep. Walking sticks are recommended. Bring a hot drink and a snack and don’t forget your camera.
