Bringing History Home
Milford-on-Sea Historical Record Society has been awarded £8,700 by the Heritage Lottery Fund in support of Bringing History Home. This is an initiative aimed at encouraging the local community to find out about and contribute to our rich historical heritage.
Catalogue to our Archive
The Society manages an archive of over 8,000 records and later this year the catalogue for our archive will be available on-line on a new website.
Everyone is making history
We are hoping that individuals and groups will add to the archive by providing records of themselves, their families, their organisations. These could be in the form of original documents, photographs, audio recordings and artefacts.
Bringing History Home plaques will be displayed at historical buildings and you will be able to download a short history of that particular building.
Local History Trails
The website will also provide short self-guided history trails for those interested in walking through some of our local history.
