New to the Collection!
Archives are unique or original records of the past, containing information about people and places.
On a day-to-day basis, records are created by individuals, communities, faith groups, businesses and charities, families, schools and hospitals, and local authorities to name a few.
These records are produced in many forms, including:
Maps, plans and drawings
Newspapers and pamphlets
Diaries, letters and personal documents
Film and TV footage
Emails and digital files
Once records are no longer in use, some are identified as worth keeping for the future because they contain information of historical importance.
What may seem unimportant today could be of great value in years to come.
