The objects from our collections are in place and the vegetable patch is being planted (there's even some well-placed weeds going in!)... it's all coming together at Joe the Quilter's cottage ready for the official opening on Thursday!

Thanks to the money raised by National Lottery players, the #RemakingBeamish project has been awarded £10.9m by the @heritagelotteryfund (HLF). #georgian #cottage #heatherthatch #1800 #comingsoon #joethequilter #quilting #stone #gardening #landscaping #collections #artefacts

A railway waggon with coal in it... it's been a long time since we've seen that! Our Steam Team were proud of their efforts when they added a "coal top" to one of our Colliery waggons. We think it looks very realistic! #steam #steamteam #topgrafters #coal #industry #steamtrain #waggon
