Ambleside Oral History Group

The Ambleside Oral History Group was formed in 1976 and currently has a sound archive of over 450 interviews from the local area, covering the period 1885 to the present day. Material from the archive includes topics as diverse as farming, domestic service, poetry, writing novels, woodworking, hiring fairs and bobbin mills.

Helena joined the group in 2018 and has interviewed a number of people including poets, authors and wood workers.

She is currently seeking new interviewees to help expand the Group’s collection further.
