From Frosterley’s fields to seaplanes at Shields – this and next week in CBA North

CBA North News

Some might say that this is the best time of year. The last of summer proper through the day and the the resumption of local group’s talks at night. Just a short email this time round to let you know of two things later this week and at the start of next which might convince you that it is.

Best wishes,

CBA North Committee

‘Arch & Arch’ Lecture
The next of the Architectural and Archaeological Society of Durham and Northumberland’s lectures is on this Saturday afternoon. Details for the society, and their other lectures, can be found through their entry in our Local Societies and Groups, as well as Events, pages on our website.

Seaplanes at Shields
The next CITiZAN recording day in CBA North’s region can be found in the poster below for next week. There were a number of seaplane and airship bases across the CBA North region during World War One, but little remains of them. This is your chance to record something of one of them before it is too late.

Volunteers in South Tyneside- Heritage at Risk

Heritage at Risk

Lucy Routledge, the South Tyneside Historic Environment Officer, is looking for volunteers to join her team in carrying out surveys of Grade II Listed Buildings in South Tyneside.  No experience is necessary and training and advice will be provided.  There are some details on the attached English Heritage newsletter, as well as news of other heritage events in the area which may be of interest.

 There are about 20 volunteers signed up so far but lots of buildings to cover, so all hands needed.  The surveys can be carried out to suit the individual and it is all very flexible so people can decide how much they would like to take on.

It sounds a wonderful way of help conserve the heritage of the local area; get some hands-on training, and get to know people in the local area interested in South Tyneside’s history.

 If interested then email or call Lucy:
