RISEN AGAIN!!
Saint Helen’s Church Opening - Sunday 15th November 2015

  Saint Helen's Church started as a 12th century Chapel of Ease, became a parish church, then a cemetery chapel.
  In 1985 it closed, was vandalized and ruined, eventually dismantled in 1998 and remnants moved to Beamish Museum.
  From 2011 to 2012 the museum rebuilt the main fabric of the church but more funding had to be raised to restore the interior.
  Members of our history group were pleased to be invited to the opening of the restored church on 15th November 2015 to see the splendid achievement of Beamish Museum.
  See more details on our Past Events  page.

ANOTHER SUCCESS!! 13th Annual Exhibition - Saturday 18th July 2015

  The Normanby Local History Group's recent annual exhibition was held at Normanby Methodist Church as usual.
  The main theme of the exhibition was Normanby of a hundred years ago - more or less.
  It was a great day - the weather was reasonably fine - and we were really pleased to welcome so many visitors interested in Normanby’s past.
  Once again the group thanks everyone who put in such a lot of hard work to make the day a success (including several local residents not even members!)
  More information can be found on our Past Events  page.
