The Redditch Historic Archives
This site provides the the vehicle for accessing the archives and the information that we hold in our archives.
Collecting, recording, interpreting and storing artefacts relating to Redditch local history is a key element of the museums operation. The are national standards for the procedures and processes that should be employed in managing archives and the museum is committed to adopting and following those standards.
To support us in meeting these standards, and therefore ultimately being recognised as an accredited archive facility, we are installing the Modes Artefact Management system as the basis for our record keeping.
To operate both the museum and the archives we rely on volunteers. The Historic Archives provides a unique opportunity for volunteers with a specific interest in local history to directly influence our progress to accredited status and gain new and interesting skills and experience. If you would like to join out archive team, and share this journey with us, please get in touch.
