Researching local history? 

By 26 October 2015January 26th, 2021No Comments

Researching local history is becoming easier in the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum’s Library as the volunteers carry out the major task of re-shelving.

All local history books and other publications are being grouped by county and town or village, and biographies by subject, rather than author. So, if you are looking for Bosham or Belloc, Bob Copper or Bognor (or anything else) come and see us!

We also have magazines, newsletters and journals, such as The Sussex County Magazine, Petworth Society Magazine, Sussex Notes & Queries, Sussex Archaeological Collections and many more covering several counties.

The whole library catalogue is summarised on a special website www.wdoam.co.uk and the search facility on this website can be used to find both article and book titles.

The Library is open on Monday mornings and often on other days as well, or by appointment. Contact library1@www.wealddown.co.uk or call 01243 811363 for details.
