Cartmel is an exciting community in many different ways, the people living in it being an important one.  We thought it appropriate to interview some of these people either because their presence and activity has a direct impact on village life, or because of their knowledge, memories and experiences.

The interviews range in length but once you click on the video link you can see the length in minutes and seconds on the bottom left hand corner.

We hope you enjoy these interviews and invite you to suggest interviews (on film or audio) with people that you believe the archive should include.
