|A 'lumber-jill' getting stuck in; don't like the look of that tree though!|
|This is a wonderfully evocative view of the Lakes in days gone by|

And we'd like your help... If you knew the Lake District in days gone by or have a family or other connection with the area then you might just be able to give us information to help identify people and places in the photos. The photos which we've already scanned are up on the walls inside Wray Castle with the opportunity for you to add your information.
Wray Castle is open every day until Sunday 4th November and then weekends until Xmas so do come and see the photos for yourself.
Here's a short video about Kenneth and our conservation project, narrated by Kenneth's daughter, Rosemary and our curator Sarah.
