MADE in the Valley - the exciting new programme of events, workshops and exhibitions at the Washburn Heritage Centre will run from February to May 2023.

A spokesperson for the heritage centre said: "Since the Washburn Valley became inhabited, the people of the valley have created both practical and decorative items within the landscape and in their homes.

"These skills have developed from cottage crafts to industrialisation and back to individuals reconnecting with their creativity. Join us to discover the history behind our iconic dry- stone walls, learn about the industrial past, try out for yourself some of the textile skills or enjoy the guided walks through our fascinating valley.

"Partake in one of our fabulous suppers, where we will recreate some of the valley’s traditional dishes, using recipes collected in our celebrated Washburn Recipe Book. Or celebrate Mardi Gras with our very own Washburn Carnival!

"Walks, talks, craft workshops, suppers, poetry and music - there is something for everyone. For further details, or to book an event, please visit our website: or call 01943 880794."

Washburn Heritage Centre, at Fewston Church, is run by volunteers to celebrate the heritage of the wonderful Washburn Valley.
