If you look at all the microfilms of the parish registers at Woodhorn they were all filmed by the Mormons. It's the same across most county archives.
I think the deal was that LDS Church would film all original registers in return for getting a copy for themselves and storing them in the Utah salt mines! The London LDS centre is the main one in this country, I think the nearest in the north east is at Sunderland. London has a lot of microfilms on their premises which you can check out on their online catalogue, otherwise they can order them up from Utah.
