1915: Reality Hits Home exhibition at the Folly in Settle, North Yorkshire

1915: Reality Hits Home

  • 31 March — 31 August 2015 *on now

The initial excitement for the great adventure has worn off and the casualty figures are mounting. Life on the Home Front, where people stumble through pitch dark streets fearful of enemy attack from the skies, is becoming more difficult. The reality of war for the people of North Craven starts to kick in.

1915: Reality Hits Home highlights some of the stories from the first full year of war. It contrasts the frontline experiences of volunteers with life in North Craven and uncovers a few heroes along the way.
