We hope you find our website useful and interesting. We would be pleased to hear your comments on ways in which we might improve the contents or the presentation, and of course corrections to any errors of fact would be most welcome.
The website benefits enormously from local knowledge as well as wider archive records. We welcome new submissions for potential inclusion, such as
- privately held documents on loan for summary, transcription or to add as images in our on-line Digital Archive
- photographs of local people and places
- scrapbook items, newspaper and magazine articles, event programmes or other memorabilia
- observations about landscape features, place names or local traditions
- original research papers or commentaries on aspects of local history
- references to relevant publications
- information on the whereabouts of primary documents not yet sourced
We are happy to offer informal guidance on local history queries where we can. We do not undertake research on behalf of others, but if your own project has run into difficulty our local knowledge may suggest new avenues for you to pursue.
