New collections acquired by Archives

Between 1 February 2022-20 April 2022 the Service accessioned 51 new collections at Woodhorn.  There is a list of a further 72 accessions awaiting deposit with potential new deposits being added to the list each week. Efforts are made to try to catalogue as many of the new deposits upon receipt as possible. 

During the same period, 9 accessions were received at Berwick, including some 19th century Irregular Border Marriage books of William Dickson of Coldstream.

This shows the important role of the Trust in raising funds to assist the Service deal with these acquisitions and to make the contents available to the public at large.
