Town Hall displays offer a trip down memory lane

A GLIMPSE into Morpeth’s history is being offered by a local heritage group.

Morpeth Antiquarian Society is displaying items from its collections in two cabinets at the Town Hall.

The group is using the cabinets to offer public access to the historic material as it continues to campaign for a permanent museum.

There have been various themed exhibits since the cabinets were introduced to the Butter Market, all organised by volunteers.

Currently, they are being used for a Women of Northumberland display as a continuation of the society’s larger Fair Day exhibition, which formed part of the centennial commemorations for Northumberland Suffragette Emily Wilding Davison last month.

The display includes items that would have been used by local women in their everyday life, as well as artefacts relating to some of the most notable women of the town.
