The Magic Attic

Local History - Local Heritage- from Local Folk

The Swadlincote Crest



The Magic Attic was started in 1987 by local historians who were interested in preserving information about the area.

    The Magic Attic is a local history archive inside Sharpe's Heritage Centre.

It is a financially independent organisation.

Although strongly South Derbyshire and North West Leicestershire orientated the archive material also covers East

Staffordshire and other parts of Derbyshire.
    The archive holds a wide range of material and is a valuable source of information for research students, family

historians and village groups.
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.

 In addition to our main activity of maintaining the collection, requests are received to mount exhibitions of photographs, maps and local memorabilia.

Talks on local history can be arranged either in the Attic or elsewhere.  

The Attic is a registered charity and run on a purely voluntary basis by trustees and volunteers and no one receives remuneration
