VISITORS to Cliffe Castle Museum are being invited to witness ripping yarns from an intrepid explorer’s world adventure.

A Yorkshireman’s Travels explores the Victorian and Edwardian fascination with exploration and travel through the character of Enoch Pendergast.

There are images of faraway places and exotic objects in the exhibition at the Keighley museum until November 17 this year.

Visitors can see images from the Bradford Scientific Association lantern slide collection in Bradford Council’s World Cultures collection, which were sent back to the UK by Bradford explorers.

A spokesman said: “The exhibition looks at Keighley and Bradford’s international role in the world and the influence of World Cultures on the area and its citizens.

“Bradford’s scientific societies aimed to inform and educate Bradford’s citizens about the world, through lectures and lantern slide shows, in a time when most people could not travel outside of the UK.”

Cliffe Castle Museum will reopen on January 18 following essential conservation work on the Butterfield stained glass above the staircase.
