Museum and Gallery Resources in the County

A range of additional materials and activities to support work on Sheepfolds can be provided by local museums and galleries.

School visits, made by prior arrangement, could enable a museum or gallery to show artefacts or works not always included in their permanent display or, even, create a special workshop or activity around the Sheepfolds theme. A museum might also have a loan or outreach service for schools.

Of particular interest are aspects of the collections at Tullie House in Carlisle and Abbot Hall in Kendal, which include excellent resources about sheep farming, droving and the wool industry.

The Lakeland Sheep and Wool Centre at Cockermouth also caters for school visits with displays and exhibitions of live sheep illustrating different breeds and shepherding techniques.
