Voices from the Land

This exhibition of photographs, audio recordings and writing shares the lives and practices of Dales farmers today. What does it take to work this harsh land? What has changed in the last 50 years and how does the future look? The work has been collected over ten months on farms and at shows and sales by Rob and Harriet Fraser and a team of volunteers. It will be displayed alongside items from the Museum’s collection.
