The Tyne & Wear Heritage Forum was formed in 2015 by representatives of local heritage groups active within the North-East of England. These groups celebrate the period of industrialization associated with Tyne & Wear, County Durham and Northumberland, when the region was at the forefront of world development during the period of the industrial revolution.

The TWHF is an alliance of key heritage bodies and individuals active within the North-East of England. At a time of restricted public funding for protection and preservation of heritage, the Forum seeks to make a tangible and significant impact on the regional environment to the benefit of those who live and work here.
