Heritage Open Days Talk at Tameside Local Studies Library

The talk that we have arranged for Heritage Open Day on Saturday 12th September 11am. Paul Renshaw will be coming to talk about 'The Stained Glass of William Morris in Greater Manchester', it will focus on Tameside and incorporate other stained glass designers in the Victorian era. You will then be free to visit any of the historical buildings that are open and see the stained glass for yourself. If you would like to book a place on the talk please give us a ring on 0161 342 4242.

Preserving Our Heritage

The Tameside Local History Forum was established in January 2000 to increase public awareness and use of all the elements of local history throughout the Borough.

We aim to promote the study of archive and source material for social, business and archaeological purposes,
To make sure that such material is well preserved, collated and accessible to all,
We encourage co-operation between related historical and civic societies and statutory authorities and act as a point of contact for them,
Back copies of our Magazine HISTORY ALIVE - TAMESIDE packed with items of historical interest about Tameside.
