CENTRAL CONSERVATION AREA
The growth of the commercial and retail heart of Blyth’s town centre led to the prosperous development of many of the buildings we see today. The impressive architectural features come from the economic wealth of Blyth during the 19th and 20th centuries. From 2012 to 2016 many of the buildings were restored through a grant scheme called a Townscape Heritage Initiative funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Northumberland County Council.
With the assistance of ARCH and supported through the Heritage Lottery Fund a free heritage guide was produced by the North of England Civic Trust and has been published by the Town Council in partnership with Blyth Local History Society.
