At Home with Greta Greenslade - an oral history film

t is quite likely that you may recognise Greta Greenslade from Barnstaple Pannier Market where she is quite a fixture, selling her tasty home made fruit pies. We met Greta at her home where she has lived for over 80 years to hear stories of how home life has changed over the years in north Devon. In the resulting oral history film, made for the social history gallery at the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon, we get to know Greta in her home environment, meet her many cats and hear her talk about embroidery, pastry making, 'scald' cream and find out about her 1950s solid fuel Sofono cooking range.

You can watch Greta's film here and you can now watch this and the other four social history films in the newly renovated Museum in Barnstaple.
