The project is to conduct oral history research to record the reminiscences of people whose lives were shaped in some way by the railway. There are four distinct volunteering roles within the oral history project; co-ordinator, interviewer, technician, and summariser.
None of these positions require any previous experience but an enthusiasm for local history is desired. You will learn specific skills with each role, such as how to use oral history equipment, interview techniques and how to carry out digital audio edits using sound software.
Carry out research into the history of the sections of the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway and the Great Eastern Railway that now form the Marriott's Way, and the impact that the railway had on local communities. This will contribute to interpretation, learning and the creation of a research guide.
Even if you’ve never done anything like this before, it doesn’t matter – everyone is welcome!
