For the first time the Port Archive has been opened up to community volunteers from Blyth Tall Ship to explore and display the rich maritime heritage of the Port of Blyth. It offers a fascinating time line of the Port and ongoing temporary exhibitions exploring in more depth, specific events and activities in the Port’s history. If you would like to get involved, either as a meeter and greater or an archivist, contact us and we will welcome you onboard.
The Space is also available for community activities, functions, events and displays.
Watch out for specialist open days, festivals and why not visit the Blyth Tall Ship heritage boat workshops for a fascinating insight into traditional boat building skills.
Our archive team meets every Tuesday between 9.30am and 4pm. It is a very sociable experience and very rewarding. Training takes approximately six months and there are opportunities to explore more skills avenues through a scheme provided by the Woodhorn Archive team. Why not pop in and visit the team if you are interested. We have start dates throughout the year.
We are also recruiting volunteers to support events, open days and busy visitor times, to guide people around the museum, our boat displays and the Blyth Tall Ship boat building workshop.
Just contact us if you are interested.
Please see see below our daily opening times. For more information, please give us a call.
