Moving North: Coastal North East

Moving North: Coastal Yorkshire

Ever wondered what life was like along the Yorkshire coast 100, 50 or even 20 or 30 years ago?  Well, now's your chance to find out as we reveal an extraordinary collection of coastal films that span almost every decade of the last century, which we'll be presenting in venues up and down the Yorkshire coast in the coming weeks and months as part of Moving North: Coastal.
