Life of a Mountain: BLENCATHRA – Keswick Museum’s exhibition (May 2017)
Just a quick update on preparations for the exhibition:
Jenn has been busy talking to local people and volunteers, starting to research various themes connected to Threlkeld, Mungrisdale and the mountain of Blencathra – including farming, fell running, hunting, mining and looking into local trades and mobile shops that used to form part of Mungrisdale life. We’re really excited to have the expertise and ...experiences of several locals, including Lesley and Colin Smith and Alan Head (whose parents grew up in the village). Our volunteers are now starting to collect all sorts of information relating to the Blencathra sanatorium, Gategill Mine, literary greats and their reflections on Blencathra, and the question of who owns the land with regards to rights and access, of which Mungrisdale Common plays a part.
We’re still looking for local information, and people’s personal connections to the mountain itself and local memories, including information on past trades so if anyone would like to contribute drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a ring 07985 215 998. Even if you just want to say a few lines about how Blencathra has influenced your life or what the mountain means to you.
