This is a new website which is building upon the work done in 2021 to produce the Historical Maps of Alnwick & Alnmouth. The project aims to bring together all the stories that tell us about the development of Alnwick and the surrounding area, providing both a research resource and a means of individuals engaging in the regions’ heritage.

This is very much a ‘work in progress’ project and we need as much help as we can get. Scroll down to find out more.


Explore the rich heritage of Alnwick and the surrounding area. Start your journey with the Alnwick Civic Society’s map of the 25 Most Important Built Assets.

Delve deeper by examining the various categories in the menu – Historical Periods, Historical Themes, Streets, Landscape and Notable People.

Find a particular place of interest using the search box at the bottom of each page.
