The Out of Town Community Outreach Project


                          Helping preserve our rural heritage

Bailiffgate Museum created the Out Of Town Museum (OOT) outreach project to  preservation of the heritage of communities in the Upper Coquetdale and the Cheviot fringe. Amongst other things it helped identify the routes people travelled, the work they did and the fascinating if often very hard existence they led – preserving ways of life that may have, or will soon disappear for ever.

Much of the content of the OOT Museum comes from the people of the area, giving face to face accounts to researchers. The result is an amazing legacy which has already proven a tremendous hit both in Bailiffgate Museum and in The Sill.  If you want to sample the content of this unique record, simply follow the link below.
