Tom Faulkner

Thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Funds Young Roots Programme, across 2019/20 Settle Stories with the help of young people locally is going to share the images and films of Tom Faulkner and tell his story.

Tom Faulkner was a well-loved local Settle photographer and bus inspector for the Pennine Buses. He knew everyone in the local area. His photography documents the lives of ordinary people in Settle and special events. Tom’s work is the only detailed photographic record of the Settle Pageant in 1953.

Young people we need you to be part of sharing this story. In doing so you will create touring exhibitions, contribute to events at the Settle Stories Festival, create podcasts, contribute to a publication, try your hand at photography and more.

There's even a chance to gain an Arts Award which will look great on your CV.

This project will begin in the early months of 2019 after we've recruited a Heritage Project Officer.
