Fiona Jenkinson, curator of the Guildhall, said: “The first exhibition in the community museum, when it opened 10 years ago, was about Beverley Westwood. This was a very popular exhibition and when the legislation was changed we thought it would be a good idea to extend the subject to look at all of the town’s pastures.
“The two less well-known pastures of Swinemoor and Figham were once much more popular, particularly with youngsters who often spent many long days there with jam sandwiches and bottles of pop. We have many lovely stories of people swimming at ‘Brickie Bridge’ on Swinemoor or ‘Chalky’ on Figham.
“How many of our residents today can remember ‘Grandad Tree’, ‘Hill 60’ or ‘Bump on the Westwood’?”
The Guildhall is open every Friday, from 10am to 4pm, with free admission.
The exhibition will continue until April 2012.
