Our brand new archives and local history centre
Construction work continues on our brand new, purpose built archives and local history centre.
The new centre is located on the Tipton Road in Dudley, next to the Black Country Living Museum. It will replace the existing centre in Coseley which now has insufficient storage space, as well as ageing facillites.
The new centre is being part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, as part of their funding for the redevelopment of the Castle Hill area of Dudley.
The new centre should be complete in the summer, opening later this year – 2013.
The new building will offer state of the art facilites and lots of opportunites for involvement from local community groups, schools and colleges.
