The Close in Living Memory

Hereford Cathedral Close Oral History

Our 18-month oral history project revealed an unimaginably rich vein of memories and beautiful photographs: from tales of the WWII fire wardens, to a Royal picnic in the rain, to modern-day students who form strong friendships while waiting for the bus.

Complementing the main film is The Learning Zone - two short films and a book of National Curriculum-linked classroom activities. 

“Fab stuff! Love the fact that you've come up with lots of different, fun ideas for presenting to the children and ways for them to record their work” - Leominster Junior School teacher

“Children who see this DVD will be very lucky” - St.Martins primary school pupil.
