This Website was first created in the 1990s. The code in which the pages were defined is still supported by web browsers today and still works(lots faster than the graphic rich stuff which is generated nowadays) but as I’ve become older and acquired more labour-saving devices I don’t seem to have as much time available to build and maintain a website so it’s been transferred onto proprietary software which should make it easier to maintain(I hope).

If you spot any errors or have anything that you think I should include please contact me. I’d especially like to be able to include historic photos of Wylam and old stories as so much history seems to disappear. I’ll happily copy and return any documents,

Note that this is neither a commercial site nor is it in any way publicly funded so  while I’m quite happy for people to comment on the content, if you violently disagree with anything on the site and want to put your own point of view you need to obtain your own web-space and send me a link to it(which I’ll include if the content does not seem  abusive,libelous.illegal, etc).

Any views expressed are solely my own and this site is in no way official.

I don’t want to collect or store anyone’s personal data and the only cookies in which I have an interest are the ones that can be eaten, but as I’m using an off the shelf product I suspect that it or some of it’s components may do so. If you don’t want that to happen I suggest that you delete cookies from your browser when you close it. I often just create a new email address when I have to login to a new website(I know but I was doing this stuff in the days when there weren’t anti-spam programs and virus checkers).

Comments are subject to moderation before they are posted so don’t expect them to appear immediately as I have a life apart from messing about with websites – and if I’m away your comment may not appear for a quite a while.

When visitors leave comments on the site the data shown in the comments form is collected, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Information supplied on contact forms is retained so that it can be processed and is used for no other purpose than to be able to contact the sender. Data may be checked by an outside agency [cleantalk_gdpr_form id=”FORM_ID”]


f you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


I don’t use any analytics data as I’m not trying to sell you anyone anything here. Other products may do so i.e. Google, Facebook, Twitter,  etc.

Who we share your data with

I don’t share it with anyone(note that you should not include in any public comment or post any data which you don’t want to share with anyone who sees the site.) but various anti-spam remedies are in use and your data may pass through their hands. [cleantalk_gdpr_form id=”FORM_ID”]. Also adverts may appear on the site as web-space costs money and no-one gives me any for doing this.

How long we retain your data

When you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can reccognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit or delete that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. [cleantalk_gdpr_form id=”FORM_ID”]
