We've always been fans of Keswick Museum and so we were pleased to hear that for the rest of this year they, along with award-winning film-maker, Terry Abraham, are presenting a rich and fascinating exhibition Life of a Mountain: Blencathra exploring the landscape, people and history of "The People's Mountain" including:
Unseen footage showing how Terry shot and edited his film; beautiful time-lapse night-time sequences; Blencathra through the seasons
A chance to vote for your favourite route up Blencathra and to contribute your story explaining what Blencathra means to you
A focus on Herdwick sheep and Threlkeld farmer Willie Tyson with the chance to pose for a selfie with Calvert Trust Herdys
An exploration underground with minerals, rocks and a mine entrance to explore and decorate
A feature on Barry Todhunter, Huntsman for the Blencathra Foxhounds, the history of the pack and the spectacular John Crosier Cup
The story of Threlkeld's sportsmen and women: Tom Nicholson, Threlkeld's champion Cumberland & Westmorland wrestler; Kenny & Pauline Stuart, record holding fell runners
Long lost images of community life in Threlkeld and Mungrisdale and recorded stories told by local people
It's on until 4th January 2018 and the price is included in museum admission.
