Written by Hitmix News Team on 12 July 2021
More than a thousand years of Staffordshire’s history is to be brought to life in an exciting new heritage project for the county.
Bringing together three incredible collections from the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Archive Service, the County Museum and the William Salt Library; the project will create exciting and imaginative ways to connect people and their stories.
They’ve received a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of nearly four million pounds towards the Staffordshire History Centre project.
It includes an extension to the existing Staffordshire Record Office on Eastgate Street in Stafford, incorporating the William Salt Library. The Library will be restored and will retell the story of the building, as well as William Salt and his collection.
