The Echoes that Remain

Project
... a search for historical information

We're continuing to be busy at Flatford this summer creating the new visitor experience in Bridge Cottage. 

We would like to talk to people whose families have historic links to Flatford’s agricultural or industrial history. 

We’d be interested to hear stories or see items which relate to people working on the land, working in the mill, working on the river, or which relate to the histories of Valley Farm, Willy Lott's House, the Mill or Bridge Cottage. 

The focus of our re-presentation of Bridge Cottage will be the 1880s, but any family stories which take us up to the National Trust's acquisition of Flatford in 1943 would be of interest. 

We would welcome every piece of information you have, even if you think it may be trivial. It may just fit in with other information that we have received and make up a bigger picture. 

Please forward any information to Sarah Milne at sarah.milne@nationaltrust.org.uk .
