Collection

Whitchurch Heritage Centre has a large collection of archives and artefacts relating to the town and its hinterland. The artefacts are the 3D part of the collection and the archives are the historical paper records.

The Whitchurch Collection consists of more than 2,000 items. Since 2008 a team of volunteers has been working behind the scenes cataloguing these artefacts and archives. The information has been entered into a database which can now be searched by the general public on this website.

Just key in a name, street, date, or event and watch the results arrive.
