Heritage Open Days, 13th & 14th September, 2019

"History of Westoe Display" at the Old Town Hall, Market Place, South Shields
South Shields Old Town Hall, in the Market Place, will be open between 10 am and 3 pm, on Friday 13th September and Saturday 14th September, as part of Heritage Open Days, 2019.

This year South Shields Local History Group will be showing a display which features fascinating extracts from Dorothy Fleet's recently published book "Westoe - a History of the Village and its Residents". Copies will be on sale.

There will also be a small display outlining the history of the Old Town Hall for visitors who have come to see the building for the first time, and who may have missed our larger exhibition shown in 2018. The Old Town Hall dates back to around 1768 - some 250 years ago.
