New books by our members and others

More books of interest to members


  • Auckland Castle reopened on Nov 2nd after a lengthy closure for refurbishment.
  • There is to be a march and demonstration on Sunday Nov 3rd,  starting at 11.30 at the Guildhall on Newcastle's Quayside, as part of a campaign to highlight the plight of the medieval timber-framed Cooperage, now in a sorry state after years of closure and neglect.
  • Nominations for our Council for 2020 need to be in the hands of the Hon Secretary by 6 pm on Wednesday 27 November. Follow this link for the nomination form. This must be signed by the nominator and a supporter (who have to be members) and accompanied by a signed statement from the nominee (who also has to be a member), that they are wiling to be nominated. It is also permissible to do this by e-mail, without  literal signatures. People can simply declare in an e-mail message they want to stand, and have e-mails from their proposer and supporter.
  • As those who attended our Monthly Meeting in October will know, Northumberland Archives at Woodhorn has been successful in its Heritage Lottery Fund bid for a project around its holdings of manorial records. The project is programmed to start in January 2020, with the volunteer element starting in March. Further details will be available shortly.
