[Album] A Trip Back In Time

This weekend I took my family out to Beamish Musium, for those of you who haven't heard of Beamish Musium here is a few lines to explain

Beamish Museum opened its doors to the public in 1970 and is an open-air museum located at Beamish, near the town of Stanley, in County Durham, England. The museum's guiding principle is to preserve an example of everyday life in urban and rural North East England at the climax of industrialisation in the early 20th century.

Please enjoy my pictures of the day, taken on my Mi Mix 3, stock camera app with Fade Filter


An authentic Fish & Chip shop where you can buy fish and chips cooked in beef dripping.


And it's so popular people que for over an hour for this delicious meal.






Many old vehicles from days gone by can be seen and ridden on like buses and trams taking people from one area of the vast musium to another


You can even take a trip down the dark coal mines of this old town

Looking back up the tunnel to the last glimpse of daylight


The tour guide is dressed in traditional clothing and explains the dangers of working in a place like this, then he turns out the light.......


With only the flickering old lamp for illumination I switched to night mode and boy you can really feel the atmosphere


Back out in the pit Village the miners houses are available to take a look through




Leaving the pit village more sights meet you along the way like the massive steam powered diggers of yesteryear


And of course the working steam trains that chug up and down the track all day giving visitors an experience they won't forget

But the greatest attraction here is the old town


With a whole host of shops and businesses to keep you happy for many an hour

But I'll leave my trip here and let you get on with your day

Bye for now

And please like, favor and feel free to leave a comment below
