Visit The Heritage Centre at Bellingham - the museum for the ruggedly beautiful and historic North Tyne and Redewater area of Northumberland, England. The Centre also houses the Bellingham Tourist Information Centre. The history of this ancient and fabled place is captured in five permanent displays covering farming (including a 'reconstruction' of the Stannersburn smithy or farriery), mining, the Border Counties Railway, the Border Reivers, and the photography of W P Collier. So, whether you are on holiday or taking a day out, or entertaining children, why not take time to enjoy ...

 

"...the wonderful Bellingham Heritage Centre where a treasure trove of memorabilia is on display..." (Tynedale Visitor 2011 - a supplement of the Hexham Courant).
