“The Key” magazines

On this page you will find a complete set of digitized copies of “The Key” magazine in PDF format.

The digitization project

This was run by Howard Wilson, chair of Skelton History Group, with help from other group members. Special mention is made here of the work done by Chris Twigg, project manager of the East Cleveland’s Industrial Heritage Project, who helped with the technicalities of scanning the copies and preparing the PDF files.

The background

The first edition of “The Key” was published in December 1991. It had come about as a result of an initiative driven by North Skelton’s councillor at that time, Mike Stephens. The idea to produce a local magazine was picked up by Norma Templeman (nee Burlureaux) who, with the assistance of her brother, Don, would go on to produce a total of thirty seven issues. All thirty seven are available via the links below. Enjoy the nostalgia!
