The creation of this book was the core of a
local history outreach project created by
Winlaton & District Local History Society.
Local musician Roly Veitch recorded a CD of songs about the history of the lower Derwent Valley,centred on Blaydon and Winlaton.
The fully-illustrated book contains the lyrics and specially-written local history background for each track.
Every school in the area was offered a free copy of the book and the CD. Posters and fliers were included.
Schools can photocopy pages and there is a loan box of 35 copies available for use in class: please contact us to arrange a loan and delivery.
Online resources, including film clips and worksheets, are available here.
PRICE FOR A COPY OF THE BOOK: £10
The CD is available separately
