Club Members winning prints on display at Joe Cornish Gallery

Northallerton Camera Club are delighted to announce that the eight winning prints from our Annual Exhibition Competition 2022 will be on display at the prestigious Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton.

The exhibition will run from August 2nd until August 27th and will be positioned in the landing on the top floor just before the Long Gallery. Joe Rose, Curator at the gallery, says “We are delighted to be able to support our local camera club through displaying these prints”. Some of the prints are for sale and we hope that members will encourage their family and friends to pay the gallery a visit during August 2022. 

As well as viewing our images, there are of course plenty of images from Joe Cornish, Paul Berriff OBE (our Hon Club President), Kate Sommervell, David Ward and many others to view and purchase, as well as a great cafe in which you can choose from a fine selection of food and drinks whilst you’re there.

Round the World Yacht Race Update

As you may know Club Member, Trevor Thurlow, is taking part in what is now the longest sporting race in history. The 2019 – 2020 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. The race was interrupted by COVID and restarted again earlier this year. Trevor writes below.

Arrived at Bermuda earlier today (13/06/22) after a 6 week, 6,555Nm sail from Seattle. Route took us down the west coast of the USA, Mexico and Costa Rica before a quick stopover in Panama prior to transiting the canal and then sailing up to Bermuda.

Plenty of wildlife on the way including leather back turtles, manta rays, killer whales and more dolphins than l care to mention.

Some stunning dawns and sunsets were reward for the never ending series of watches.

Well that’s 7 of the 8 legs done so l will soon be home and attending Monday night meetings again.

Best wishes to all my Northallerton Camera Club friends.


The current race standings can be found by visiting the Clipper Website. Trevor is racing on the Chinese sponsored boat Zhuhai.

Northallerton Heritage Hub

Northallerton’s exciting new ‘Heritage Hub’ is now open. The hub is based in an empty shop close to the town hall – and during the first month will feature a pop-up exhibition on the former Northallerton Prison.

The multimedia exhibition features artefacts from the prison site, including the original prison bell and an old cell door found in the rubble during redevelopment work. The hub will also be used as a base for community consultation, for workshops and to highlight projects being undertaken as part of wider heritage work in the town.

Keep an eye on the Hub Website for details of up and coming events and displays. 

We’re pleased that George Barker, a long standing member of Northallerton Camera Club will shortly be providing a selection of heritage images of Northallerton going back some years.

The project is being part funded by Hambleton District Council and through the High Street Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) which is part of a £95 million government-funded programme led by Historic England. It’s designed to secure lasting improvements and help breathe new life into historic high streets for the communities and businesses that use them.
