We were approached by the University of Sheffield and asked to host an MA placement for one of their History students, Amanda Marshall. Amanda will be spending around 100 hours of her time on researching the history of Hambleton House - the original name of Exchange Place Studios and area surrounding it. Amanda was also keen to investigate the rumours of an underground tunnel linking the Castlegate area with Manor Lodge where our Manor Oaks Studios are based.
"I am very excited to be working here", said Amanda. "I think there is so much to be discovered and I am keen that your artists and members of the public can find out more about this place".
Amanda proposed that her research will be documented in pictures for display panels at Exchange Place Studios. We will let you know how she gets on in our next e-newsletter.
