Old photographs, plans, documents and ephemera
If you have any old photographs or documents of
historical interest, relating to the people and places
from our area then we would love to hear from you.
Scans/copies can be emailed to us for publication on the
site. If you would like to contribute please send us a
message through the 'contact us form' above.
We are interested in the area from West Chevington and
Widdrington village to the coast, and north to
Shilbottle and Newton on the Moor. That is the old
parishes of Warkworth, Shilbottle, Brainshaugh and
Chevington Chapelry, and a little beyond. We are
particularly interested in: The Collieries; Radcliffe,
Broomhill, Newburgh, Hauxley, Whittle and Shilbottle.
The 'lost' towns; Chevington Drift and Radcliffe, and
anything else that has disappeared due to opencast
mining. Also fishing and agriculture, the port of Amble
(Warkworth Harbour) and the port's vessels. Landscapes,
streets and buildings particularly those showing change.
Group photos: workers, soldiers (groups of local
territorials, officers, war casualties), sports teams,
Note: We are restricted
by copyright, and it's unlikely we can reproduce
anything here already published post WW2, so we are
particularly interested in pre WW2 material, although
your own unpublished photos can of course be reproduced
with your permission.
