Local History - Local Heritage - from Local Folk

John Redfern’s latest book takes a look at how the town centre has changed over the years. Full of wonderful pictures it shows many well-loved buildings that have long since disappeared or been altered in appearance.

This book hopes to rekindle some fond memories for those residents of the district over the last few decades.

The Magic Attic is a large local history archive located in South Derbyshire at the Sharpe's Heritage Centre, West Street, Swadlincote.

The archive contains newspapers, photographs, maps, artefacts and family history information for South Derbyshire and surrounding areas.

Visitors and enquiries from outside the region and from abroad are also given every assistance and are equally welcome. We work in close association with the libraries of Swadlincote and Burton on Trent and with most of the local history groups.
