Welcome to the information page for the listening bench installed in Great Waltham, Essex.
Here you can find out more about the clips featured on the bench. There is also information about the group of villagers who put the clips together.
The clips currently loaded onto the bench highlight how life in the village has changed over the last hundred years. The clips were taken from interviews recorded by Anne Cowlin in 2001-2005 for her book, Halcyon Days of Cod Liver Oil: An oral history of Great Waltham in the twentieth century. You can read more about her project on Essex Archives Online. The interviews are a fascinating insight into ordinary village life in the last century.
