The Parish Council would love to create a photographic archive of Thornley Past and Present.
To do this we’re asking you if you have any photographs of the village.
It doesn’t matter if you scanned them or historical photos passed down through your family, we’d love to include them in the archive.
Have you any of a relative working in the Thornley Colliery or pictures of the front street.
What about you in your younger days, in a school photo, or just messing about with friends in the street, or those of an important event, or Jazz Band Parade.
If you have any photographs and would like to share with us so we can build up an historical picture album of Thornley please let us know.
Please send any images to firstname.lastname@example.org or call in to the Village Centre and we’d be happy to add them to the album.
On the 15th of June 2018 the village of Thornley in County Durham England came together to remember and honour Victoria Cross winner, John Scott Youll.
