Archive Exhibition 2015

Carleton’s 2015 Archive Exhibition held over the weekend of 10/11 October was a great success. It is estimated that over 300 people attended over the two days.

The main theme was Significant Buildings in Carleton and the exhibition featured over 160 photographs (of which 80 had not been included in an exhibition before) backed up by historical information for the 28 buildings selected. In addition the exhibition included a repeat of the exhibition given in 2014 to mark the beginning of WW1 and the exhibition given earlier this year to mark VE day.

Three venues were used: the Village Hall, the School and the Church and the exhibition was well attended. Of particular interest were the “mystery photographs”, ie photographs of events held in Carleton showing people, some of whom had not been identified.

The buildings featured in the exhibition were: Village Hall, Swan Inn, Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Old Primitive Methodist Chapel, New Primitive Methodist Chapel, Spence’s Court, 1849 Cotton Mill, the Brown House, 1861 Cotton Mill, Wheatsheaf House, Park Place, Grundy Farm, Lane Head Farm, Sixpenny Sike Farm, Glen Farm, Grange Farm, Ivy Cottage Farm, Queen Anne House, Carleton Old Hall, The former Rectory, Trappes Hall, Robin Hall, The Grange, Ravenshaw, Carla Beck House, Beech Hill House, The Endowed School, St Mary’s Church.
