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,
