A new historical DVD that takes a trip back in time throughout Ashington has been put together.

The one-hour long ‘Ashington – A Nostalgic Feast’ DVD features some rare archive footage and still photographs looking back at the town.

The film has been produced by local history group Sixtownships and is the latest in its films looking at the region’s past.

Among the features on the film is footage of Central Hall, The Wallaw, The Buffalo Cinema, The Grand Hotel, and Juvenile Jazz Bands.

John Dawson, of Sixtownships, said: “Our heritage is so important to us all and it’s important to recall our past and this DVD will certainly bring those memories flooding back.”

The DVD is available from www.sixtownships.org.uk for £6.49.
