27/10/2016 Voices of Axbridge goes to the Somerset Heritage Centre

The South West Heritage Trust is delighted to announce that the Voices of Axbridge archive is now available for research at the Somerset Heritage Centre.

The archive was officially handed over on 17 August at a ceremony at Axbridge Town Hall attended by the Mayor, the Voices of Axbridge project team and an archivist from the Heritage Trust. Maggie Tur, the project leader, paid tribute to the hard work, dedication and good humour shown by the project volunteers, and commented that this was where the team’s job finished and the work of the Archives Service started.

The archive consists of over 100 interviews (with full transcripts) with Axbridge people, giving a very detailed picture of life in the town in times past, as well as a snapshot of life in the 21st century. Interviewees included 18 of the town’s former mayors, local business people, older residents and Civic Award winners.

The collection has now been catalogued and can be consulted at the Somerset Heritage Centre in Taunton. The Heritage Centre is open Tuesday to Friday and the morning of the second Saturday of the month. Visitors are warmly welcome to come to listen to these fascinating interviews.
