More about this scene

Acomb was once a centre for the lead-mining industry. An old building dating from 1730 is still known as the barracks, a name said to derive from its use as a lodging house for lead miners.

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
