Description

An amateur film showing various street scenes around Hexham dating from around 1960. It is possible the film was made as part of a re-development and pedestianisation project in the town at that time.

The film opens with a view looking to the south of Hexham Abbey. This is followed by a view of Hallstile Bank looking west towards Market Place with the abbey in the background. General view of an empty Market Place followed by scenes of various stalls and shoppers at the market.

The film cuts to a view of Hexham Abbey from Beaumont Street followed by a number of additional street scenes with varying amounts of road and pedestrian traffic.

Two plansĀ  titled "Hexham Town Centre" and "Proposed Pedestianisation" are pinned to an indoor wall. Further general views of a Hexham shopping street and the market square follow.
