North Charlton has become the home of a very special museum – a unique collection of artifacts which chronicle the history and heritage of this part of Northumberland, built up over the last 25 years by owner Sylvia Armstrong, MBE.
With fine examples of proggy and hooky mats made by women to cover their cold flagstone floor and excellent examples of early 19th & 20th century handywork,
There are also ornate buttons, thimbles and old fashioned spectacles, along with early 20th century photographs of people still in the region today.
