▍Complete reproduction of old buildings and life|1820s Pockerley

In the village of 1820, there is a lovely church called St Helen's Church, which is a medieval building. It was first located in Middlesbrough in the northeast of England. Demolition, under the "intercept" of the museum team, the entire building was moved to the museum intact and rebuilt. There are many numbers on the wall outside the church. According to the staff on site, this is a mark made for the reconstruction of the building to remind the construction workers of the location of each stone brick.

Another house, Pockerley Old Hall, used to be a farmer’s house, dating back to 1440. A resident is burning charcoal to bake bread, watching him busy in and out, while controlling the fire, while calculating the time, and thought he was really a resident here. It turned out that he was played by the staff and is presenting the life of the people of the time. Appearance. There is no sense of disobedience in traveling through time here. Even better, tourists can also take the old steam train in the village and feel the transportation that has been in the past for a long time.

▍Go shopping in the town and take a retro photo|1900s Towns

This is the most lively area in the museum. There are bakeries, auto maintenance plants, dentist clinics, ancient bars, banks and afternoon tea houses on the street. Every store can be visited. There is a professional staff meeting. Talk to you. As a car fan, I am very excited to see many retro cars and locomotives in the auto locomotive maintenance plant!

In 1964, in 1895, after a photo studio in Durham closed, the museum opened a photo studio in the town where the museum was established as a memorial in the name of the photographer John Reed Edis. It also provides clothing from the 1900s for guests to take pictures. Let's take a set of beautiful retro photos, the camera used by the photographer is also retro!

▍Miner's settlement reappears, ancient early-fried fish and chips | 1900s Pit Village, Colliery

The mining industry in Northeast England is well developed and played a very important backing during the Industrial Revolution. This area presents a small town where mining was prosperous at that time. Tourists can walk into narrow pits under the guidance of professional commentators. Everyone had to stoop down and head down to be able to walk. It was a profound experience of the greatness and hard work of former mining workers.

Pit Village has schools, fish and chips shops and houses. The classroom furnishings are complete, and even the little blackboard hall where children practice writing is intimately prepared. The houses are also very interesting, all residences can be visited. The fish and chips shop here also uses traditional methods, adding butter and heating it with charcoal, which is delicious.

▍UK farm life experience|1940s Farm

This area presents the farm life after World War II. At that time, due to lack of materials, every household used government-distributed materials. There were many livestock in the village, which fully showed the life of wartime people. In Farmhouse, you can also smell the smell of cooking with a stove. It is really a "full of five senses". travel.

A full visit to the Beamish Open Air Museum takes about half a day, from taking the tram on the door, to the carriage, retro bus on the road, and displaying typesetting. Many of the staff in the museum are dressed up like the ancient times, giving people a sense of life in the era. I recommend you to experience and learn about the culture and history of northeast England in another way.
