Readers who love the rich history and beauty of the Yorkshire Dales may be interested in a new project which has recently received Heritage Lottery Funding. Settle Stories will digitise a large collection of audiocassettes documenting Dales writer and journalist Bill Mitchell’s interviews with Dales people, made during the 1980s and 90s. Bill’s expertise and knowledge enabled him to get the most from his varied and fascinating speakers. The project incorporates story-telling and work with schools. There are many opportunities for volunteers to take part. As home to the W.R. Mitchell Archive, which includes correspondence, photographs, scrapbooks, ephemera and more cassettes, Special Collections will work closely with this very welcome project.
