Teesdale Record Society eader picture

The Society normally holds 11 monthly meetings a year and these are a mixture of outdoor meetings at places of interest and indoor meetings which are held in Cotherstone Village Hall, Moor Road, DL12 9PG. Non-members are welcome at all meetings, indoor or outdoor, when a donation of 4 would be appreciated.

Please note: though some outdoor meetings are tours round the inside of buildings, the majority are outside and so it is important to wear suitable clothing and sturdy waterproof footwear for the 'English summer'.

Please note: as from February 2023 our meetings are on Wednesdays, not Mondays.
