  • Eglingham churchyard 31/05/2023

    Many years ago the Friends did a Churchyard Survey at Eglingham which was typed up and made accessible in Berwick Record Office. There have been a lot of changes in over 20 years – stones fall down and new ones are erected –  and so an application was made to the local Windfarm fund for the parish to run a project centred on the Churchyard and the memorials.  The project includes Family History and photography and is open to anyone with an interest in Eglingham Churchyard or people who are buried there.

    If you would like to find out more, please come along to the launch meeting on Tuesday 6 June at 7pm in Eglingham...
