Your Local Knowledge
The memories and stories of local people are an integral part of the museum’s collection. The museum has an active oral history programme; we are always keen to interview local people about their memories of the town. Some of the clips from our collection of over 120 interviews are now available to listen to in the museum and on this page.
The museum is regularly offered donations, including objects, photographs and documents. If you have something that you think might be suitable for the museum we would be delighted to hear from you.
Please get in touch if you have something to share.
