Over two short days, a group of 10 young people have been exploring what heritage really means to us today and finding out from the people in the Holme and Colne valleys what heritage means to them and what makes this corner of Yorkshire unique to us.
On Monday; Sam, Rochelle, Jacob, Alicia, Logan and Hoikay took to the streets of Honley and talked to passers by about their knowledge of local heritage. While Lillibeth, Jay, Hetty and Toby spent their afternoon exploring what heritage means and how we see it, feel it and live with it with the help of Dr Heather Nicholson of Huddersfield University, who also lives in Meltham.
Tuesday, Luke Powell, a local dry stone waller came into the studio to talk to the group about the history, art and science of dry stone walling, the difference between dry stone walling, wet stone walling and general wall building, as well as why dry stone walls are so unique to this area of the country.
It has been a great two days exploring the heritage of our Holme and Colne valleys, but this is just the beginning, these 10 fantastic young people would like to continue finding out in more detail about our past and how it fits into our present…
