More about this scene

In the 1950s Acomb boasted a number of 18th-century buildings. Tynevale House was built in 1754, Town Head in 1796, and the Miners Arms in 1750. Acomb House, to the south of the village square, was built in the 1730s, though it is thought to incorporate the remnants of an earlier house.

Telfers of waterside and Holly hall

Hi, does anyone remember the Gibbison family who used to work on the farm at Holly hall sandhoe Hexham Corbridge in the late 1920s/30s ?

Norman was my father and I know he was born in Acomb Northumberland at Middle Farm February 1910. I am trying to trace his roots and would be grateful if anyone has any information.

when I see the photo Acomb the Village, I remember living opposite the Queen's Arms Hotel, with my family Chris and Lucy Henderson, my uncle Billy and Aunt Elizabeth and mam Mary. I was born there in 1955
