Walking through time in Wooler : 2018-2020
GLHS with Glendale Walkers for Health
This project aims to promote Wooler’s history by encouraging residents and visitors to explore Wooler & its environs and to see how the town & the landscape has been shaped through millennia.
The team has produced five Walks Leaflets, three of which are history-themed, and 11 History-Themed Information Boards displayed on buildings in and around Wooler town centre. As of April 2020, a book of 10 history-themed walks is in production. Three events for children have taken place at different times of year.
The Project Team consisted of: Pam Ratcliffe, Allan Colman, Patsy Healey & Helen Astley from GLHS; Chris Crosbie, Marilyne Bullock & Joan Hogg from Glendale Walkers, and Bill Eugster leading the activities for children.
The project has been funded by Northumberland National Park, the Carnegie UK Trust & Northumberland County Council, along with smaller contributions from the Archbold Trust, Berwick Rotary, Glendale Small Grants Fund, & the North Northumberland Voluntary Forum Small Grants Fund, and a significant contribution from GLHS itself.
The leaflets can be purchased from the TIC at the Cheviot Centre, Padgepool Place, Wooler, and outlets in Wooler Hight Street.
They can also be obtained direct from GLHS – see the Publications page of this website.
