Brian said: “The book is a list of references of books, pamphlets etc in numbered alphabetical order by authors with regard to all aspects of Morpeth that I have been able to find. In addition there are other listings at the back of other sources relevant to Morpeth.

“It is hoped the book will be useful for researchers and local residents.”
