Beamish

Postby Blow-in » Sat Nov 19, 2016 8:55 pm

Our annual holiday was nearly 3 weeks in our old caravan with the 2 dogs near Durham in the north east of England. One reason to go there was to visit the open air museum at Beamish. Here are a few shots. I only had the trusty GRD4 with me.

Good to see the remnants of bygone times, Richard. I myself just love old industrial sites. My preferred form of travel is of course railway even if now days it lost lot of its steampunk charm. I remember in my childhood in Poland, the excitement while waiting for a long trip to seacoast and the glorious moments the steam behemoth puffed slowly in the station filling it with white cloud of steam. The double-decker tram is just wonderful
a glass restaurant, coffeshop or just an artists atelier on the go.

Thanks Stanislaw. What I like about Beamish is that everything works and there are no interpretation boards. Instead there a volunteers in costume who are in character and can answer questions about who they are, what they are doing etc. The site is large with some original sections and others where genuine buildings have been transported and rebuilt. There is a ring road and the trams run in both directions and you simply hope on and off at the stops to travel from one of the 5 areas to another. Some more shots:

I guess the closest thing we'll have to time travel in our lives....must be a nice way to spend some leisurely time.

What's funny is that some places are so congested today, that it takes the same time to travel by car from point A to point B, as it took 100 years ago by cart and mule... :)

Thanks Quester. Yes, Beamish and other such open museums are a bit of a nostalgia trip. They've just secured funding to open another area dedicated to the 1950s which will be serious nostalgia for me. We looked in to the storage area and were amused to find a set of pyrex dishes identical to a set we received as a wedding present and still in use at home.

There were a lot of school children visiting on one day and for them it was an educational visit to gain a better understanding of the days of their forebears. There are many hundreds of volunteers who act as guides or interpreters of the heritage. They dress in character and really study their roles. They are not passive either, they drive the trams or bake the bread or do some other activity. My favourite was the 1913 dentist (no picture sadly) who told me HIS mortality rate was only 1 in 20 patients. He at least was not engaging in any practice!

Here are a few more with some volunteers:

Hi Richard,
good to see the GRD4 still works! Was wondering if I should let my GRD 3 go...it is gathering dust since picked up the GR II.

Nice series up there! I have never been t this museum, but these type of installations fascinate me too.

All the best,

Andy

Thanks Andy. A GR or GR II would be nice but I've spent all my pocket money for this year.
