Richmond & Me

Richmond Castle Schools Writing 950 Project

Children and staff in Richmond’s primary schools and nursery, along with residents and staff from Richmond’s Nursing/Residential Homes, present their written thoughts, ideas and memories of what Richmond means to them.

The writing will be displayed around the town and later archived at Richmondshire Museum along with recordings of interviews made on 8th May by journalist Ashley Barnard during the Historical Market Day.


Chapbooks provided simple reading booklets during the 17th – 19th centuries. Richmondshire Writers are creating a 21st century version for Richmond's 950th.
