Have you ever wondered what South Hylton looked like in years gone by?

Then wonder no longer. South Hylton Local History Society have taken twenty eight photographs around the village and compared them with how that place looked originally to bring to life the many changes over the centuries. Wherever possible there is a photograph going as far back to the original.
