Dear Consett Magazine readers,

Thank you for picking up your free Consett Magazine for May 2021.

In this month’s edition, you’ll find the next installment of the Corona Photo Project, which aims to host an exhibition or series of exhibitions in the area once restrictions are relaxed and it is safe to do so – the project documents the lives of people in Consett over the last year, showing future historians how the Consett community came together to fight the global pandemic. We think it’s a project worth sharing and we hope you’ll attend the exhibitions when the dates and locations are published. To find more content about the Corona Photo Project with links to the project Facebook (just visit and search “Corona Photo Project”).

We hope you’ll enjoy this month’s content from notable contributors including Lorraine Weightman, Ray Igar, Chris Gage, Consett Brown Owl’s Victoria, Joyce Shaw, as well as an article submitted by local residents who’ve banded together against plans for a local incinerator to be built in Hownsgill Park.

And remember, if you’d like to contribute to Consett Magazine, we’d love to hear from you.
