SCRCA Glossary Definition (Short version)

'SCRCA Snippets' are items of background information relating to one or more of the locations (sites and / or structures) within or associated with the Settle-Carlisle Railway Conservation Area (SCRCA).

Snippet categories include:

  • formal detailed descriptions of structures;
  • knowledge bases (brief summaries of key facts and figures associated with a given location);
  • extracts from, or summaries of, third-party primary and secondary reference-sources;
  • the memories of specific individuals (in the form of oral histories); and
  • general notes.

Each snippet is associated with all relevant site and / or structure records, which allows the snippet title to be automatically listed in all relevant Location Summaries. (Clicking / tapping the snippet title opens the full snippet.)

The Location Summaries can be accessed via the Virtual Visit, Gazetteer and Explore options.

Information of a more general nature is gradually being uploaded via a series of Articles.
