Darlington As It Looked 1880 - 1980

As we get older it is often easier to 'step back' and view events and developments with a clearer sense of perspective. The aim of this group is to assist this in respect by presenting a 'catalyst' capable of rekindling memories of days gone by in an entertaining manner. Looking through the pages of this group it may be surprising to see how much change has taken place in Darlington, some good, some bad.

The memories people are sharing here are fabulous to read. So many stories popping up of times gone by, the things some of you used to do as kids being remembered by others, some of you finding long lost friends, or an old work colleague.

Enjoy your walk down memory lane, we really hope you enjoy indulging in Darlingtons History.
