We really believe our project has something to interest everyone. If you are new to the area and want to learn something more about it. If you’ve had family connections for decades and want to share some of your knowledge.
If you are just curious about that funny building at the bottom of the road.
We can help! Here’s how you can take part in one of the most comprehensive historic studies of this area as it was a century ago.

A great way of getting to know older people in our neighbourhood and preserving precious archive material which may be lost forever.
