Beamish is a working museum situated in County Durham.

The museum shows how people worked and lived in the North East England during the 1820s, 1900s & 1940s.

The museum has it’s own 1900’s town where you can see the bakery producing bread, cakes and biscuits using traditional Edwardian recipes.

There is also the Co-op which had been in Annfield Plain, in County Durham before being moved to Beamish

The museum looks very interesting from Elaine’s photographs, so much so I am planning a visit myself!
