Welcome to Ancrum & District Heritage Society
a small village with a big history


It’s nearly Christmas, at the end of what has been the strangest year anyone can remember. We’re all trying to sort gifts without making the usual trip to ‘the big shops' to see the bright lights.

If you’re searching for a last minute stocking filler for family or friends, what about a year’s membership to ADHS costing only £10.

The society’s slogan – the little village with a big history - has been proved true yet again this year with the research at the Old Bridge at Cleikimin. And we've plans to restore the Hogback Stone to the kirk yard next year. All these projects need funding, so the more members we have the easier things will be.

A small certificate will be issued to show this is a gift membership

Please email treasurer@adhs.co.uk with details.

As a community group, Ancrum & District Heritage Society have set out three main projects that we think require further research, conservation and promotion. These include:

  • The Mantle (or Malton) Walls site at the foot of Ancrum Village

  • The Hogback Stone of Ancrum Kirk

  • Old Ancrum Bridge at Cleikemin
