Due to the current situation with Coronavirus and the advice from the UK Government we have had to close our Heritage Centre for the time being and postpone our forthcoming Family History Open Day and monthly speaker events.

We Apologise For Any Inconvenience

Trading goods can still be ordered and research enquiries made and we will resume all our activities as soon as possible.
