From May 2017 to August 2017 the exhibition showed the different ways that people, both locals and visitors, can see and experience the valley, whether though feats of engineering, through the written word, through leisure activities or through local eyes.
The theme for October – December 2016 is a partnership with the King Street Workshops from the Old Workhouse at Pateley Bridge. It brings together a group of renowned artists, makers and designers to share their knowledge, skill and expertise.
The exhibition, running from December 2015 – February 2016, featured panels showing extreme conditions in the the very rural setting of the Washburn Valley and some reminiscences of the hardships caused.
