MOD memories

Do you have stories to tell of what happened on the MOD site at Allen's West during the war?  Did you work there soon afterwards and see the changes that happened?  If you're in the Eaglescliffe area next Friday, Sept 2nd, then the industrial archaeologists looking at the site would love to hear from you.  As local residents will know from our Focus leaflets there is a planning application being prepared for even more housing on that site.  Before it can be finalised the agents are holding an event to collect the history of the site.  From 10 till 4 on Friday Sept 2nd, Allen's West site office is the place to take your stories and memories and share them with archaeologists.

Where can I view Focus leaflets online? I no longer live in Eaglescliffe, but still have an interest in the area, and plan to move back at some point.

Glad you're still interested in Eaglescliffe. Focus leaflets available on Just click on the "Download Focus" link and you should find them. You can also sign up for email alerts from the site for news. There's the Eaglescliffe e-news and I'll add you to the list if you email me. It goes out when there's some news between editions of Focus.
