Societies have now completed their investigations on this project. It concerned an investigation into the Names and Signs of Pubs and Inns of Northumberland. A short report has been written for the forthcoming issue of Tyne and Tweed, Vol.65. Data collected by Societies has been deposited in Northumberland Collections at Woodhorn, where it is available for consultation. Thanks are given to all members who participated.
PAST PROJECT - SHOPS AND TRADE
purpose of our previous Project, held between 2004-2007, was to record the changing
patterns of retail and trade premises in the towns, villages
and hamlets of Northumberland. As post offices, banks
and public houses are closed, this survey will provide
an important record of 'what was then' and 'what is now'
for the communities of the participating local history
** The results of the above project have been published in "Tyne and Tweed", October, 2008. They give evidence, among other things, of the gradual decline of the small craftsman who worked in a workshop or shed close to the family home. Increased globalisation and more leisure has led to a fascinating new array of shops and facilities.
***** The data collected during the 'Shops and Trade' project has now been deposited in the archives collection at Woodhorn, Northumberland, where it is available for public viewing.
