Alston Moor is very fortunate among local history societies to have its own archive collection of documents, books, press cuttings, maps etc, all connected to the history of the area.
A group of volunteer members is in the process of organising all of the Society's historical records so that they can be more readily available for research.
You can use this on-line Catalogue to search for information about items in the archive collection. Anyone can search the Catalogue, but you need to have a username and password to be able to add or edit records.
The information has been uploaded from the previous spreadsheets and paper catalogues, and is still being added to. There's still a lot of work to do to catalogue the rest of the Society's collection. If you'd like to help us with this, or just to join the Society please contact us.
