The Beamish Craft Club has done an amazing job with this poppy display. You'll find it in The Masonic Hall in The 1900s Town this weekend. #Armistice2018 #ArmisticeCentenary #Armistice100 #ArmisticeDay

There's been a hive of activity inside our replica Leasingthorne Colliery Welfare Hall and Community Centre with joinery, electrical, plumbing and insulation work taking place.

Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, the #RemakingBeamish project has been awarded £10.9m by the @heritagelotteryfund #construction #replica #museum #1950s #community

There’s nothing better than a delicious scone on a grey day. Today in the Tearooms, there’s a choice of cheese, fruit or our scone of the day, mixed berries! What will you have? #scones #scone #sconesandtea #cheesescone #fruitscone #mixedberryscones #baking #food

Hmmm, which one to sample first... jam tarts at the 1940s Farm or rock buns from the Pit Cottages? #SaturdayKitchen #food #baking #1900s #1940s #instafood #yum

There's a chill in the air and it's time to make sure those fires are lit, but how do you do your paper... a roll with a knot, crumpled in a ball or other? #fire #firestarter #winterchill
