HAVE YOUR SAY ON ORAL HISTORY OF DUFFIELD
Over the next year (starting in November), an Oral history of Duffield will be collected on behalf of the
National Trust and Derwent WISE as part of their Duffield Castle project.
What will it involve?
Duffield residents and ex residents from all walks of life, age groups, genders and backgrounds will be invited
to talk and record their experience of living, working or being pupils in Duffield and what they know and feel
about the Castle.
By collecting people’s stories and memories in this way, we will all become important contributors to the
history of our own village and the tapes will be stored in the British Library Sound Archive for posterity.
