Heritage Open Day

The Consett and District Heritage Initiative is holding another exhibition at the Heritage Centre in Blackhill Park on Saturday 9th April 2011, 12-4 pm.

The Trust is supporting the Initiative to help preserve the history of Shotley Bridge and will have a display table of old photographs at the event.

The research room at the Heritage Centre is open on a Wednesday, where old documents, artifacts and photographs can be looked at.   Permanent displays about the history of the area are being created in the foyer.

The artifacts include some from the ‘Consett Steelworks Exhibition’, which used to be in the Shotley Bridge Heritage and Tourist Information Centre.

Please let me know if you have any artifacts or records of the area that you are willing to donate or loan to the Heritage Centre. In particular, the Centre is compiling a digital archive of old photographs and is appealing to borrow personal collections for scanning.
