Black Country - Living Museum

Wednesday, 21 October 2015 - 8:45am

Black Country Living Museum is a remarkable place to explore, and spend time. Set in a landscape of 26 acres, it is one of the most extraordinary open-air museums in the UK, offering a unique glimpse into 200 years of history.

Black Country folk changed the world. In the streets of their canal-side village, on their tramway and down their mine, you can experience how ‘they’ became ‘us’. Fifty authentic shops, houses and workshops have been reconstructed to preserve the character of the region when its manufacturers brought worldwide fame to Black Country Towns. Take a trip on the tram to explore the village, where you can meet and chat to costumed characters. Explore a mine and experience authentic sights, sounds, smells and tastes from the past.

See demonstrations and events from metal working and glass cutting to sweet making. Watch the silver screen flicker to life in the Limelight Cinema with silent films from the 1920s. Marvel over vehicles from the golden age of motoring and experience a real ‘spit and sawdust’ Inn. The cost will be a total of £25 LALG members, £27 non-members.

The coach will leave Baldock outside Templars Restaurant (formerly Zeus) at 8.45am and Letchworth opposite Barclays bank at 9.00am.
