“Jonathan recently deposited several boxes of back-numbers of the Hamsterley and Witton-le-Wear Parish Magazine at the County Record Office. The archivist was delighted to receive them and she has written to thank him – but has listed some issues that are missing, as you will see below.”

“I wonder if anyone can fill the gaps, please?  It would be amazing if anyone can find the very early copies but surely between us we can complete the more recent years.
