In this issue we’ve two main stories – an update of our own events page, updated since its launch at the start if the month, as well as of an event this coming weekend. Community archaeology has been active since the start of the year and CBA North Committee also been busy chasing up leads for stories we think will be of interest to you.
We’ll continue, however, to highlight local groups activities and events as well. Now we are in 2017 we’re looking forward to hearing of your plans for this year. We have updated our own Committee pages to refresh the details, including some pictures, of your committee for 2017.
CBA North Committee, 22.01.2017
Enriching The List
[The Enriching The List project has been underway for some time now. Within the CBA North region there are all types of designated sites that might be investigated and pictured. These include the 15000th entry for the national project with a picture of Egglestone Abbey, near Barnard Castle, County Durham.
This Historic England event takes place on Saturday this weekend; if you would like to get involved then you will need to book with Nicola by Wednesday. Clickable details are given below for Nicola if you can make the date and for the project as a whole if you can’t, Ed.]
We would like to invite you to attend a free Historic England workshop being held at Locomotion, the National Railway Museum at Shildon on Saturday the 28th January, 9.00am – 1.30pm.
The event will provide information on the National Heritage List for England (the official list of England’s most significant places) and will explain how local heritage and community groups can add their own information to this list. The museum is also offering delegates a free Railways Tour after the workshop.
Further details on the project can be found at here. A particular focus for the project, particularly apt for Shildon and the north east generally, will be for local railway information. Other examples of what has already been submitted can be found with the #ListEngland hash tag on Twitter.
