Reply To: Woodley field

Jennifer Britton

This is a very belated reply, so you may already have discovered some of this information.

Some early 20th century building control plans of Woodley Field are held at Northumberland Archives. You can search their catalogue here

A newspaper cutting in our files states that the owner of the property in 1902 was a Mr E Sisterson.

If you have access to Findmypast you could try looking at their newspaper archives. I tried searching for Woodley Field (limiting the search area to Northumberland) and found that there was a fair number of interesting articles about previous owners. You could follow this up by searching for the owners on the various censuses also available on Findmypast, as well as the 1939 register.

If you don’t have access to FMP I think you will find that there is free access at Hexham Library.
