Northallerton's Hidden Heritage

Expression of interest

The Northallerton and Villages Community Forum (NVCF) is to host a community event at which residents of Northallerton and the surrounding villages are being invited to bring along items they hold that could be of local historical significance. These might be stored in garages, lofts, garden sheds and outbuildings and may be in danger of being lost as time goes by.

NVCF is well aware of the community interest in developing a museum or heritage resource in Northallerton and the event will provide an opportunity to illustrate the volume and range of material ‘critical mass’ of community support for such a scheme.

The event is to be held at the Forum in Northallerton on Sunday 8 September between 10am and 4pm.

How to submit

If you have any items which you believe are of historical significance to Northallerton and the surrounding villages and would like to have them assessed, catalogued and displayed at the event please complete this Expression of Interest form before the end of Friday 2 August.

If you have multiple items, you will need to submit a form for each item.
