Membership of the Northumberland & Newcastle Society

About us
Since its creation in 1924, the Society has built a solid reputation as a well-respected organisation which champions the special heritage of the city of Newcastle upon Tyne and the County of Northumberland (which now incorporates North Tyneside).
