Good news! The Archives will remain open until 4.30 pm on Thursday 21 December 2017 when we will close for the Christmas break. We will re-open at 9.00 am on Tuesday 2nd January 2018.

We will be closing for two weeks to move into the newly refurbished Heritage Hub in the new year. We will announce the firm dates as soon as we have them.

Cross-curricular learning resources for schools

FREE Key Stage 2 and 3 lesson plans and supporting resources

We worked with local schools to develop and publish FREE downloadable lesson plans and supporting resources.  These help students learn about the effects of WW1 on their communities through documents in our collections.

You might also get ideas from our Help with your research into WW1 and Help with recording and sharing your research findings pages.
