Welcome to DurhamWeb

Durham Web has been updated and is still being worked on. This site may develop its own identity in future but, for now, it serves as a set of links. All of these links will open a new tab or browser window depending on which browser you are using.

County Durham History and Heritage Forum is an umbrella organization for local history groups and societies. The site is a useful reference for anyone interested in local history linking to sites of member organizations and listing speakers available to lecture on various topics.

Durham in Time

The Durham in Time project now has it's own website. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund it provides the opportunity for societies and community heritage groups throughout County Durham to record and digitise their local history collections.

Community Organizations

Click here for links to organizations you may be looking for. Durham Web was originally created as part of The Integrated Access Project under Durham County Council. The project has now come to an end and, since many of the pages it supported were moribund, the old DurhamWeb server has been taken down. The pages for Durham County Local History Society and County Durham History and Heritage Forum were active and used by their organization's members so the domain has been relinquished by Durham County Council to allow this site, which is effectively a new Durham Web, to be established.

It seemed that no-one missed the old DurhamWeb pages but recently a representative of one of those organizations did ask where their page had gone and your web-master has also discovered some links to old DurhamWeb pages which, of course, brought up an error. DurhamWeb is not going to revert to its old form but this links page is an attempt to steer our visitors to the new sites of organizations that have moved on or at least provide contact details for those that do not have their own web pages. Similarly some effort is being made to introduce contact pages and links at the addresses of those formerly broken links. If you find a broken link to a former DurhamWeb partner (which would appear in the URL as www.durhamweb.org.uk/something) please contact the webmaster. If you can please also contact the site with the old link and tell them to update their links page.
