About Co-Curate


Overview

Co-Curate is a community Website which brings together online collections, museums, universities, schools and community groups to make and re-make stories and images from North East England and Cumbria. Co-Curate is a trans-disciplinary project that will open up 'official' museum and 'un-officia'l co-created community-based collections and archives through innovative collaborative approaches using social media and open archives/data. Co-Curate delivers a transformative educational environment creating a rich mix of openly licenced and other data from arts and humanities, science, and medical health contexts, placing 'authoritative museums' data from professional curators alongside data from more informal contexts compiled and published in collaboration with communities.

    Hi
    I noticed your website whilst I was researching info about the N.E.R. Alnwick to Coldstream (Cornhill line) and I was wondering if one of your contributors could help me with some research I'm doing? I have recently bought a cast iron railway sign from a friend of mine who owns an antique business in Alnwick, "The Beehive". It is a cast iron oval plaque with "No. 193" stamped on it. He believed that it came from Edlingham station and could be the number of the station or other railway construct in the area? I have been researching on the net for leads relating to station numbers, but to no avail. I would be very grateful if anyone could give me any info about this plaque or pointers on where I might find out about it.
    Cheers
    Ged Wharton
