This episode is actually recorded in the museum and as you will hear it is a thriving visitor attraction.Today Susan talks with Dr Helen Clifford, who, with her husband Alan, runs the Swaledale Museum in Reeth.
The Museum is based in the old Methodist School which was purchased in 1973 by the Law family who converted it into a Folk Museum. When it was to be closed in 2004 Helen and Alan came to the rescue and extensively restored it to become the museum that we now know and love.
There are some changes planned over this coming winter, and when you listen, Helen will explain all about it.
