If you missed the 17th March Speaker’s Morning presentation about the Shared Learning Project on the Knight Family Archives, there is a recording available here.
The Project – a joint enterprise between Minehead and District U3A and the Exmoor National Park Authority – is transcribing documents from the large mixed archive, now lodged in the Somerset Heritage Centre. Members who have been working to produce modern digitised versions of the texts, gave short presentations of some of the stories unearthed as part of the Project. Here are tales of ambitious enterprises that faltered, personality clashes that resulted in legal disputes and bankruptcies, stories of hardship on the Moor and much more.
