Warkworth History Society
The society’s December meeting, “Christmas Songs and Stories” led by Geoff Hughes, was combined with the launch of our guide book, “Warkworth Heritage Walks”. We were delighted to welcome members of Amble Photographic Group, Warkworth Walkers and others who had helped us in the production of the book and enjoyed a convivial evening together.
The book was sponsored by Awards for All, a joint Lottery grants scheme which supports a range of community activities, with a supplementary grant of £250.00 from Warkworth Parish Council, the remainder of the cost being met by the History Society. It comprises a brief history of Warkworth and includes seven walks in and around the village. Each walk is accompanied by an easy to read map, information on the history and natural history en route and stunning photographs.
Work on the book took nine months to complete and involved not only History Society members but also the aforementioned Amble Photographic Group, Warkworth Walkers and many individual members of the community. The book was designed by Metromedia and Design Ltd. The History Society would like to thank them all; this was truly a community effort and the resulting publication is a tribute to their work.
Copies of the guide book are now on sale in Warkworth Village Store, The Bookworm, (Post Office) Amble and The Flower Centre, Amble and local tourist centres at a price of £5.00 each.
The books can be ordered by phone from 01665 713 439 or 01665 710 180.
