Welcome to the Collingham and Linton Remembers  Website

The Project shown on this website ran from November 2017 - November 2018 as the residents of Collingham and Linton, two villages in the valley of the River Wharfe in Yorkshire, paid tribute to the men and women who served and worked in the area during WW1.

This Project has now ended but has created a legacy of information, stories  and photographs which will be recorded both on the website and in a book which is currently being compiled and will be published in 2020.

120 Blue Plaques fixed to our historic buildings provide a fascinating glimpse of life in the villages 100 years ago.  Printed leaflets to assist you interpret this Heritage Trail are available from Wetherby Library and the porch of the Parish Church of St Oswald's in Collingham.  You can also find the leaflet on the Heritage Trail page of this website.

The Project's Pop-Up Community Cinema has now become an established part of village life, showing popular films in the Methodist Church Hall, Harewood Road, Collingham on 2nd Friday of each month at 7.45pm

Collingham Memorial Hall was the first Memorial Hall to be built by public subscription at the end of WW1.  It is currently being modernised and up-graded ready for its Centenary Celebrations in February 2020 when a new War Memorial will record 9 additional names of men from the villages who were discovered, in the course of this project, to have given their lives in the service of their country.
