Listening Bench

Saffron Walden Initiative has been working with Essex Record Office (ERO) to edit oral history recordings which are played back by the general public at a listening bench located in the grounds of Saffron Walden Museum.

The voices heard are: Janet Bright, Maggie Gypps, Kenneth Osborne, Chris Pledger, Ron Butcher, William Clarke, Albert Bacon and Bruce Munro.

The ERO project is called You Are Hear and aims to encourage a diverse range of communities to actively engage with the recordings and to help people develop a 'sense of place' and to reflect upon where they live.
