Beamish 1940's Farm 1/5

Beamish - The Living Museum Of The North - Part 4

One area of the museum at Beamish is set up as a 1940’s Farm showing what life would have been like during the Second World War. Two rows of cottages have been rebuilt on site, and have been fitted out as they would have been at the time. The lower picture is of the inside of what would have been the main farmhouse.

The attention to detail is wonderful.

There must be a lot of maintenance staff employed at Beamish.
Brian Walbey: It covers a large area with various themed areas so it does need a lot of people to look afetr it and play the parts dressed up in costume.
i really like your angle in the interior shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I tried several different angles but this oen came out best.
A very nice place to live for the time!
Brian Walbey: This was the kitched/parlour in the farmers house, nice isn't it.

It looks quite cosy inside
Brian Walbey: It felt cosy being in there, we had it more or less to ourselves.

These are great pictures, this looks like a great place to live, love the feel of the living room.

I am puzzled at why the downpipe did not go straight down to the left of the door Brian.
Brian Walbey: I gues the drainhole must have been put in before the downpipe was put in.
I love the stove center in the kitchen.
Brian Walbey: That must have been a very upmarket one being that size, the first house I lived in had something similar but nowhere as big as this.

A hard life I should think but that was the norm then and no-one knew any different so accepted it.
Brian Walbey: I suspect this room in the main farmhouse was somewhat nicer than those in the workers little cottages.
The fireplaces there are very much like those I spent my childhood beside - but we never had a room that looked as good as that!
Brian Walbey: The range in the kitchen of the house I lived in for my first 10 years was a smaller version of the one I'm showing here, when we got a new council house, complete with an electric cooker my Mum was over the Moon.
