‘Middleton Life’: Video Oral Histories of Middleton, Leeds

Posted on 20/07/2012 by


News about an oral history project in Middleton, Leeds spotted on http://southleedslife.com


The Middleton Life local history project launched last week, with local residents contributing towards history panels, a stained glass window and a special heritage edition of South Leeds Life magazine, which is out soon. They’ve also put together a 25-minute oral history film, which saw Middleton Life members interview fellow residents on the memories of bygone times.


These are rather nice videos of residents recalling (with lovely Leeds accents) life in Middleton and they consider what has changed and what has remained the same. Enjoy.
