Keys to the Past

Local History

Newbiggin (County Durham)

A First World War memorial plaque hangs in the Village Hall of Newbiggin-on-Teesdale that formerly hung in the village schoolroom which closed and is now a private residence. In 2013 a local woman won a long-fought battle for a WW2 plaque to be commissioned in commemoration of local inhabitants who fought in the later conflict - the plaque now hangs alongside the WW1 memorial.
