We are currently undertaking an oral history project to collect the personal memories of change in farming and agriculture on the Island since the Second World War.
This has been made possible with funding from Down to the Coast, an HLF funded landscape partnership scheme focusing on the East Wight. We are conducting interviews with older people who have memories to share about Island farming in the past, with a particular focus on East Wight.
Oral history is all about recording the memories of older people and storing them for future generations. This project will enable us to add to our Museum archive of Island voices that have so far gone unrecorded.
