Co-op Rear View

Another image of the former Hedgeley Co-operative Society store in Powburn has been added to the Breamish Valley Photographic Collection: specifically, as part of the Breamish Hall Heritage Project investigating the history of the Breamish Hall.

The image compliments three other photographs for which licences for use were obtained from Northumberland Archives (a sponsor of the Northumberland Village Halls Project), i.e.
