The Folly at Settle is planning a series of exhibitions to mark the First World War.

The museum is taking part in the district-wide project, Craven’s Part in the First World War, and is appealing for memorabilia so it can create a picture of what life was like in the area during the dark days of the 1914-18 conflict.

“We’d like people to start looking through their attics and garages, sheds and back bedrooms, searching for photographs, posters or whatever connected to World War One,” said Folly administrator Glen Preston.

“We are also interested in people’s memories and their family stories about what happened to their families during this time.”

And, to assist, it is holding a drop-in session on Tuesday, November 5, from 10am to 1pm.
