The Coldstream and District Local History Society offers a warm welcome to all interested in discussing and researching the history of the South Berwickshire and North Northumberland areas.

A page from the war memorials database

I designed and developed a new site to highlight the range of the Society's activities, and its latest news and events. There is an extensive Projects section showcasing the Society's past, current and future projects, which includes two extensive searchable online directories: a War Memorials database recording details of the fallen inscribed on war memorials across Berwickshire and Northumberland, and a database of headstone transcriptions in the historic Lennel kirkyard just outside Coldstream.

The site is coded using responsive web design techniques to help ensure it is accessible to as many browsing devices as possible. The design's vintage ambience is enhanced by the use of the Adobe Caslon Pro typeface.

The site is integrated with the ExpressionEngine content management system to allow the Society to update the site's content and imagery.
