Archive Research Sessions

In October and November we held research sessions led by Sue Benson of Cumbria Archive and Local Studies Centre to learn more about archive research. During the two-hour sessions, Sue will showed us what Market-related material is held in the Archive, from early maps and plans to photographs taken over the years. We also visited The Mail Archive and Heather Horner brought us a large selection of Market related material to an evening research session.
