  • Work with Schools: Elmet Trust

    In November 2006, Wild Rose Heritage and Arts worked with the Elmet Trust and Burnley Road School helping Year 4 pupils to ask questions of eight local people who went to school in the 1930’s with Ted Hughes, former Poet Laureate, who was born in Mytholmroyd.  This was part of an Elmet Trust project, who were working with the BBC on a radio programme for Radio 4. We have finally been able to put the audio for this onto our website. We recorded the interviews and have given them to the other groups to use.

    There are no transcriptions for these sections.

    As part of our plan to make oral history accessible in a variety of ways, storyteller Rachel Loise has gone through the Generations Talking transcripts and devised a thirty minute story taking small sections from many personal life stories and woven then together, using verbatim quotes, to develop a character called ‘Margaret’ in which, while in character, she portrays life in Hebden Bridge from 1920 through schooldays, work and beyond. Rachel has performed her story in local schools, elderly residential homes and community centres. An audio/visual version will soon appear on our website.
