A museum of the Dearne villages local history. Also an education centre, public space for hire and a people library. A people library is where real living people with interesting stories and lives can be “borrowed”. You sit with them for a period of time, perhaps in a bit of the museum made to look like a living room, and they tell you everything! All local people can register to be “living books”. It will give purpose to our older people and give wisdom to the young ‘uns!
There was a lot of Ro,an activity locally, and an iron age village discovered at Thurnscoe near Southfields development. There have been some important archeological finds and treasures. Modern history section would be very interesting too, from Victorian time through to now. A local history trail and map on-line would be good. One that can keep growing.
