Happy 100th Birthday Mary!

Mary and her family, the Raines, lived at Spain’s Field Farm in Weardale for over a century and, after being deconstructed stone by stone, the building is currently being rebuilt at the museum as part of our Remaking Beamish project.

Mary celebrated her 100th birthday on Monday and Connor and Natasha, from our Remaking Beamish Team, joined in with celebrations yesterday and presented her with gifts and a special card from the museum.

Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, the project has been awarded £10.9million by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
