The First World War and Nidderdale AONB – Leeds Pals, POWs and the Home Front’ – Amanda Walters, WW1 Project Officer
A talk on our three year HLF funded First World War Centenary Project. I will give some background on what the project is about, what we have done so far and what we are hoping to do. I will focus on Colsterdale, because of the interesting First World War heritage of the area and its links with Masham.
By Amanda Walters, WW1 Project Officer, Nidderdale AONB
My role: I am employed by the AONB through HLF funding to run our First World War project. This involves working with partners, volunteers and other stakeholders to make all the various parts of the project happen! Including: archaeological research, historic research, public events, educational activities and interpretation.
Meetings are held in Masham Town Hall and begin at 7.30pm. Non members are very welcome and are charged £3 per meeting.
