Wooler Youth Hostel

  • Description

    "Wooler Youth Hostel - and feather-legged hens! From 'Town and Country Trail', available from [[3449946]]: "This single storey 'U' shaped building was built in 1940 as the Land Army Hostel. The 30-40 'Land Girls' living here worked the land, drove the tractors, pulled turnips and still had time for the local dances! Several still live in the town - having married local men. Later used to house Latvian refugees, it was converted to Youth Hostel accommodation in 1954."" Photo by Barbara Carr, 2013.
