Audio Recordings

This page is still Work in Progress

When Lilias Macdonald passed away in 1918, she left us a stack of audio recordings of herself and other villagers. We will add these to this page once they have been edited an annotated, along with recordings by Bobbie Banks, Jim Tailor and Steven Reid.

Meantime, here are a few recordings from Lilias.
