Unlocking the Archives HLF-funded project

2017 sees a new project to transcribe a number of our archives. We have been given a £6,500 Heritage Lottery Fund grant for Unlocking the Archives, a project digitising, transcribing and disseminating a number of documents at Woodhorn. Follow this link for the dedicated website.

Over two hundred images are now on the site (others need enhancement before they are put on display) and around 60 transcriptions, provided by a team of volunteers. If you think you'd like to get involved, send us an e-mail.

We have also run two free palaeography classes in conjunction with Explore Lifelong Learning and Durham Record Office, to whom much thanks.


In the future, don’t forget your past
