Our Library

We have an extensive collection of books, files and documents, which are intended as source material for research. Many of these are held in our storage in Childswickham, but those of more immediate interest are at our Study Room facility at Church Lench.


We have an extensive collection of photographs, pictures and postcards. Many of these have been digitised, to form a library of over 9000 images (including many duplicates) a few of which are shown here in our gallery. An index of our images is available on request to Society Members only.
