Unlocking the Archives

We have now launched our Heritage Lottery Funded project Unlocking the Archives, for digitising, transcribing and disseminating some more of our archives. Follow this link for the press release and a brief explanation (as a Powerpoint presentation from the launch meeting) of what is involved.   If you think you’d like to get involved, send us an e-mail.

We will be working on three collections from our archives:

  • The final report of the County Durham Flood Relief Committee
  • A set of papers and drawings concerning the rebuilding of Hexham Bridge
  • A volume of Hexhamshire Wills dating from the 1670s to the end of the reign of Queen Anne.
