WEA North East is supporting local history and heritage research groups to map out walks through which we can experience ‘Routes of Social Change’ - social, domestic, industrial, maritime, and natural history on our doorsteps.

Want to get involved? Join up, it’s free!

Our mission is to unite locals in researching the history of North East locations, reflecting on how historical events impacted communities. Explore forgotten stories guided by WEA tutors north and south of the Tyne.

  • Meet regularly with voluntary history and heritage researchers locally
  • Join visits to local archives and museums and learn about history and heritage research techniques
  • Help to design your own local history walks and heritage trails
