Welcome to the Hamsterley and South Bedburn community website.
It's been developed to provide a means of communicating about the life of the village, both to local residents and to potential visitors.
We welcome contributions from Hamsterley and South Bedburn businesses and residents. The more up to date the site is, the more useful it will be!
Contact us with any feedback or site contributions.
