Local History Day 2007 and Book Launch

The launch of our book "Around Wheatley Hill" took place at our local history day on 30 June, 2007. The launch speech was given by Julie Hawthorne, the Community Heritage Officer for Durham County Council.

We were celebrating the Edwardian era on the day, and had a stunning Old Time Music Hall, barrel organ as well as a display by Beamish Museum. In the following photographs, the gentleman at the rostrum is dressed as Peter Lee, a prominent member of the village in the early twentieth century.
