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.
Another disused Co-op Store photo added
Earlier today I wrote that we had secured funding to purchase licences for the use/publication of images of the former Hedgeley Co-operative Society store. At that time, two of the four obtained photographs had been published. I can now inform you that a third image has now been added.
