Malmesbury Voices Special with Bill Reed

Malmesbury Voices Special with Bill Reed

This is a podcast about the Malmesbury Voices, the fascinating oral history project collected by Bill Reed from Athelstan Museum



Most interesting. Especially your recordings of the way people talked in the old days. I have a book entitled "Word Maps", covering the country & produced by team from University of Sheffield. It charts, on maps, use of variants of particular words/dialects. Malmesbury is in intriguing location accent-wise, being in Wiltshire, but relatively close to borders of Gloucestershire and Somerset.
