The website for the North Yorkshire (UK) villages of Slingsby, Fryton and South Holme
Slingsby Audio Archive
The Slingsby Audio Archive is a podcast documenting the history of the North Yorkshire villages of Slingsby, Fryton and South Holme.
A number of recordings have been made over the last few years where, as part of the local history weekend, local residents discuss various aspects of village life and history.
Previous discussions have looked at farming, Slingsby during World War II, education, local businesses, entertainment, sport and more. Further recording with residents are planned and will be added to the archive at a later date.
The podcasts can be listened to via the player on this page. The archive will be made available on iTunes very soon.
