Books and documents of interest are continually being donated to The Magic Attic and
this list is only a small proportion of what we have, including a variety of
information on many of the families who lived in the district
and companies that traded within the area.
The Magic Attic is a Registered Charity run entirely by volunteers and financed only by donations.
