The Weardale Churchyard Project took place between 2005 and 2008 with the aim of recording memorial inscriptions in Weardale. The project was run by Weardale Field Study Society with the help of a grant from the North Pennines AONB. Project Manager, Margaret Manchester, trained a team of volunteers to undertake this work.
Thank you to all the volunteers who took part, and special thanks to Ken Heatherington for the Westgate, Frosterley and St Johns Chapel records, Mavis Bowman for Stanhope Old Cemetery and to the late Russ Parkin for photographs which I hope to add later.
The information recorded is available to view free of charge in the files below:
