Our Archive

We are currently developing an archive of local history resource that is available to view at Prestbury Library. This will help us to preserve our village’s history and will also provide a valuable resource for those undertaking research.

We currently have six committee members who are key holders to the PLHS Archive. If you would like to view material we hold please contact us to arrange access. We are adding new material all the time and the catalogue will be updated regularly so please check again soon for new items. We are also hoping to make some of our collection available online.
