The Children of Sale & Davys CE Primary School, Barrow upon Trent have recorded interviews with the elder residents of the parish both on video and on audio.
You can download the videos from our Mediafire Storage by following these links
During World War Two, Barrow Hall accommodated evacuees from London –earlier this year we were fortunate to be able to interview two of the evacuees when they returned to the village
The files are quite large and download time even on fast internet is about 2 minutes each –
The files will be available on DVD – the DVD is in post-production at present
There are also additional videos and audio recordings of elder residents, but these are as yet unedited and not yet released
We have embedded a few video clips from YouTube on this page to give a flavour of the information that we are recording.
You should have no problems downloading the You Tube Files
