Consett & District Heritage Initiative are a voluntary organisation.
The group was founded in May 2010 with the goal to make the history of our area accessible to all.
We believe in education and have already given numerous school display’s and talks.
In the past 6 years we have also had numerous open days and seen 1000’s people through our doors.
Our Archives are growing at a steady rate with donation’s of photo’s, postcards, books and artefacts and we hope this continues.
Through archiving and sharing of information we hope to save our history for the future generations.
We are based in The Lodge, Blackhill & Consett Park where we have our office on the second floor.
The Lodge is located just up from the bottom gates on the left.
Our office is open every Wednesday from 10am -4pm for anyone interested in finding out more about our local history or to give help with your family history (Tuesday 10-12.30).- note currently closed due to the Covid Pandemic
