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

We are pleased to report that we have now set up a Just Giving page

This is to begin the process of raising funds to return the Hogback Stone to it's rightful place in Ancrum Churchyard. Having spent 2 winters drying out in safety, it is now ready to be repaired and reinstated. Please can you consider helping us in whatever small way you feel able and share this link as far and wide as possible, let's see the stone home soon. Thank you


Spring is coming, and after the challenges of 2020 we're all appreciating "Little Lovely" and her beauty just a little bit more. Would you like to be more involved in the community?

Ancrum & District Heritage Society is always open to new members so please don't hesitate to get in touch with our Treasurer via treasurer@adhs.co.uk for membership details.

Information on the exciting community projects you can be a part of can be found here

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
