If These Stones Could Talk

 

                 

 

This project which took place all over Alnwick on September 14th 2013 helped  tell the story of Alnwick town centre with its many magnificent and historic buildings. Over the years many things have changed within the town, but these stone buildings have remained the same- witnessing hundreds of historic events, conflicts and celebrations.

There is now a video of the event which we think you will enjoy:
