It feels like I’ve been sponsored by the local press in the last couple of weeks:
Looking seasonally ghostly at Dukeshouse Woods: http://www.hexhamcourant.co.uk/news/hexham-community-asset-status-for-woodland-is-national-first-1.1091577
..and some great pieces about Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers project
and there’s a cracking piece in that paper today about the conservation works that have been going on.
and I’ve been helping the North of England Civic Trust’s Heritage Skills Initiative pull together their bid to rescue Ushaw Home Farm to host a Heritage Skills Institute: http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/local/darlington/10728093.Volunteers_to_help_secure_the_future_of_North_East_s_listed_buildings/
