The Story of Joe the Quilter’s Cottage

With the help of Beamish’s videographer-extraordinaire, David Watchman, John recently made a video to explain the story of Joe’s cottage – including some background around Joe’s life and death, a description of the excavation and a rendition of the ballad about Joe from 1826!
