History Centre Openings

The Society is an entirely voluntary organisation and, regrettably, cannot provide a research service. You are encouraged, however, to visit the History Centre, during a public opening, where help and guidance can be provided.

Please note that the History Centre welcomes everybody, but we do ask people not to bring babies or animals, while children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

If possible, a donation to help defray running costs is appreciated.


The information about the History Centre collection given on this website is rather informal in nature and it is possible for a reader to ‘read into’ or expect more about an item found in these web pages than may actually exist. If you are planning a visit to the History Centre on the basis of something found in these web pages we advise the reader to make enquiries with the society before the visit – especially if travelling a distance.
