Town Council launches Blue Plaque Scheme

Stanley Town Council is launching a blue plaque scheme within the Parish to celebrate the area’s heritage. The Parish includes not just Stanley but surrounding villages including Annfield Plain, Catchgate, Tanfield, South Moor and Craghead.

The intention will be to commemorate noteworthy individuals and locations across the Parish and develop a heritage trail for the interest of residents and visitors alike. For more information about the Scheme or to nominate a location for a Blue Plaque, please see our Blue Plaque Scheme Page

    George Camsell my Grandad’s cousin from Craghead played for Middlesbrough and is only 2nd highest to Dixie Deans as goal scorer in an English football season. He also has the highest goals per game ratio for England…worth a google for this local hero.
