Morpeth reform school
« on: Saturday 20 June 09 13:40 BST (UK) »
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
I'm trying to find information on Netherton Training School/ reformatory, Morpeth. I seem to be going around in circles and unable to find anything.  There is a reference to it on the workhouses site but no information on the place itself.
Any help much needed and appreciated.
Thanks in advance. :D

For more information about the Reformatory go to
http://communities.northumberland.gov.uk and enter Stannington and Netherton (Nedderton) in the search box. There are photographs of the Reformatory and Reformatory Farm together with maps.

I realise how long ago the initial request was made, but thought what little I know may be of interest to someoneMy uncle was the son of the Headmaster of Netherton Training School. I have some items owned by Mr & Mrs Banister, including a silver tray which has the following insciption:-
