We've had to move to Keighley as the Manor House museum at Ilkley, where we've always had our exhibitions before, has closed down. Cliffe Castle is a very interesting place in its own right though and well worth a visit. Our exhibition coincides with a display on Fairy Folklore, exploring local tales and beliefs about the fairy folk, including the Cottingley Fairies. The first photo of these 'fairies' was taken in 1917. To celebrate that centenary, part of our exhibition shows photos we entered into a competition called 'Can you believe your eyes?', which includes photos that are not truthful but look as though they are, and some that are truthful but look so odd that you could think they are fabricated.
