Activity 4 – Snapshot in Time

Over three days, between 21st – 24th September 2016, eight volunteers led by Tees Archaeology were trained in how to create basic records of buildings. This was the beginning of the Skelton ‘Snapshot in Time’ activity, intended to create a systematic record of all the buildings of the historic core of Skelton.STH-IMG-005-Activity-4.jpg

During the subsequent 26 volunteer days of work, a total of 45 building records were created (see example opposite). These covered more than 45 buildings, since short terraces of similar properties were given a single building number.

Phase 2 of this activity will be carried out between 11th and 15th September 2017.  This is a wonderful opportunity to be shown how to look at the village from a different point of view. You will never walk down any village, town or city street again without looking at the buildings around you in a totally new light. If you would like to make a contribution to this activity by participating for a day, or more, please download the form for volunteers  and return it as directed.
