We’re lucky here in Yorkshire to have a great wealth of interesting and unique museums showing off our rich heritage. I much prefer the type of museum which tells of our social history rather than those containing collections made by Victorian travellers. In Pateley Bridge last week I took the chance to visit Nidderdale Museum – a real gem of the Dales. Situated in the former workhouse away from the main street, it is run by volunteers and gives a real flavour of life in the dale over the centuries. Make sure you call in next time you’re in the area – a couple of quid well spent. I was in the region looking into Nidderdale’s industrial heritage – look out for my article in a future issue of Dalesman.
