Open Sundays 2017

5th February, 2nd April, 4th June, 6th August and 1st October

At the February and April meetings there will be training sessions for anyone wishing to trace their WW1 ancestry. We'd also welcome anyone who has information about the medal presented by Lord Derby in 1923 to Chipping ex-servicemen and the families of those who lost their lives in WW1.


We hold informal sessions at St Mary’s Community Hall in Chipping on the first Sunday of the certain months on the year from 2 - 4.30pm when our archive is available for private study.  It can also be made available at other times by prior appointment.

The archive has census records, graveyard records, old documents, miscellaneous records, and photographs of the local area and its people.

This is an excellent opportunity for visitors and members to share information about local and family history in a friendly and welcoming environment.

If you have any old photographs or records you would like to share with us, then do please bring them along, as we are now able, with your permission, to scan them for our archive.
