Support grows for Haltwhistle Heritage Centre

Support for new Haltwhistle Heritage Centre continues to grow with a recent public meeting in the town attracting significant support. It is hoped that the new heritage centre would be able to house important local documents, artefacts and research material on Haltwhistle and the surrounding area. This will be a major coup for the local council and further strengthen the town’s claim to be the “Centre of Britain”.

Over the last few years there has been growing demand for more tourist related and history related services in and around the area. It is understood that if the Haltwhistle Heritage Centre does receive the go-ahead then surrounding towns and villages will be invited to forward their own particular documentation, artefacts and research material to increase the profile of the project.

A number of prominent councillors and ex-councillors in the town have taken up the baton regarding the proposal and it seems that sooner rather than later we should see movement in favour of the project.
