    Upcoming House History workshop at The Hive

    • 18th September 2014

    “Who lives in a house like this?” was the question in Through the Keyhole, but a similar question is also asked by many people who wonder about the history of their house. On Saturday 4th October we’ll be re-running a popular workshop to help guide you in how to trace the history of a house or building.

    We’ll look at the various sources we have here which can help, such as maps, photos, historic environment record, building plans, electoral registers, census and trade directories, and how to search the indexes and catalogues.

    The workshop runs 10am-1pm on Saturday 4th October in The Hive, and costs £8. Booking is required, and you can do so by emailing explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk, phoning 01905 766352 or visiting the Explore the Desk when it is open.
