Swordmakers talk

There was a good turnout at the open meeting on Tuesday evening. Although there were technical issues with the projector communicating with the laptop, Andrew Thompson’s talk about the Shotley Bridge Swordmakers was very interesting and informative.

He is one of the five Trust members on the Heritage Group who are writing about the History of Shotley Bridge. His chapter on the Swordmakers is one of ten in the 36 page booklet which is to be published in time for the Trust’s AGM on 21 June.

After the AGM, Grace McCombie, buildings historian will be giving an illustrated talk about the historic buildings of Shotley Bridge.

    is it possible for me to purchase the book on The History of Shotley Bridge?

    Yes the booklets are on sale at Harrington Brown Estate Agents in the village and from members of the Trust’s Heritage Group.
    We also hope to be able to sell them on eBay using Paypal later this year, once we have the account set up.
