We were delighted to be asked to develop a new site for the Friends of the Stockton and Darlington Railway being lifelong supporters of our national and local railway heritage. The new website includes an online shop in which new and existing members can pay for membership whilst shopping for S&DR gifts and publications. For those wishing to take a closer look at the site of the railway, the Friends’ have published a range of leaflets detailing manageable walks along the track bed.
One of the most exciting parts of creating the website, was organising and presenting the archive information into the Online Library and Community Museum. With access to huge digital archives this is a fantastic resource for anyone carrying out research and requiring access to primary research data.
The resources now available from the new website provide a clear insight into the difference the S&DR made to the world.
Categorising it was fascinating work.
A perfect example of how a website can be multi-faceted, providing a shopfront to promote the work and benefits of membership of the S&DR and a comprehensive Content Management system for those visitors who wish to delve into the archives.
