Oral History Project - website launch

The Clear Waters website has just launched, a result of our one year Heritage Lottery funded Oral History Project. The website features videos compiled of photographs and interview excerpts from the archive, along with information on the Windermere catchment and some associated environmental issues. The Project involved collaboration with many organisations, and would not have been possible without the help of our volunteers who interviewed FBA scientists, anglers, naturalists and local residents. The transcripts of these interviews will be available through the Ambleside Oral History Group's website at the end of July.
