Hebden now host to Charlestown, Mytholm and Eastwood info

SINCE 2004, the British Library has been selectively archiving websites with research value that are representative of British social history and cultural heritage.

Under the scheme Hebden Bridge Local History Society has been selected by them for regular archiving.

President Frank Woolrych said: “This demonstrates the importance that the British Library attaches to our community and photographic archive.”

The society is now also hosting the Charlestown History Group website, substantially increasing the amount of information relating to Mytholm, Charlestown and Eastwood.

Richard Peters of the Charlestown group said: “We are delighted that all the information we have collected over the last 12 years will now be available for future generations.

“We would urge anyone with information, documents or photos of the area, however recent, to get in touch through the HBLHS website.”
