    We’ve got a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to research and present an exhibition about Hareshaw and Redesale Camps - used during WWI to train troops for service on the Front. We’ll also be producing education materials for local schools and a free booklet for all children in the North Tyne, Rede and Tarset Valleys.

    So, we’re looking for more information about the history of these camps along with images, documents and stories associated with them either before, during or after WWI. You may even recall snippets of the army’s activities from parents or grandparents.

    If you can help, please contact our project manager David by email at or leave your details at the Heritage Centre.
