Welcome to the website of the Aln & Breamish Local History Society [A&BLHS].
Based in the beautiful Whittingham Vale, the Society acts as a focus for those interested in the local history of North Northumberland, and in particular the Aln & Breamish Valleys.
The A&BLHS meets once a month during the autumn and early summer ; 7 lectures in all. Topics range from local speakers giving a fascinating look at the past, and researchers and archaeologists bringing us up to date with the latest projects and discoveries.
Meetings are held at the Whittingham Memorial Hall [NE66 4UP] on the third Wednesday of the month, starting at 7.30pm. After the talk, members enjoy a cup of tea together and have a chance to meet the speaker. Non-members are most welcome to attend our meetings [£3].
Dates and details of our meetings can be found on the “Society’s programme” page.
The Society is keen to encourage research and to collect documents, images and articles covering the local history of places, events, families, farming and schools.
