Beamish - Part One

Welcome to the wonderful world of Beamish Open Air Museum in County Durham, England. Acres of land preserved and maintained to reflect all aspects of life in the early 20th Century. Beamish was originally a small coal mining village, so living conditions were hard - but OH SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!
I took so many pictures that sunny day I was in 7th Heaven - everything was pure eye candy - so I have decided to do a few posts - this one is called.....
My girls had so much fun in the old classroom, writing on the old slate boards and sitting at the lovely school desks. The teacher was very composed and quite strict - always staying in character. Watching my three girls was like watching The Little House on the Prairie! The playground - and a few hoops to practice with - they were metal and the noise was excruciating! So beautiful - how I wish my children could go to a little village school, in the 1920's, on a sunny day. Next post........we go shopping . Wait until you see the Haberdashery!!!
