THE Gallery on the Green in Settle is once again linking up with Settle Stories for this year’s winter exhibition.

A hundred years after the death of Craven dialect poet Tom Twisleton, Settle Stories is seeking to bring back to life the words of Tom Twisleton, a man who captured the essence of rural Craven in Victorian times.

Settle Stories has been working with young people to look not just at the words but also the social issues that lie behind them and so give an insight into life in this area as seen through the eyes of a poet who lived from 1845 to 1917 and was a farmer, temperance advocate and a fine wordsmith.

The gallery’s contribution will be to feature panels showing what Christmas was like in the time of Tom Twisleton and featuring some of his own poems.

The exhibition, which runs until January 25, 2108, opened last Sunday, the day after Settle Stories held its Tom Twisleton Day celebration at The Folly in Settle.
