Daily Local History Posts

Sharing Our Heritage from Bruce Castle Museum and Archive

Bruce Castle Museum and Archive may be closed to the public during this period of social isolation, but whilst we all stay at home, you can still access its wealth of history.

The Museum and Archive is sending out a Daily Local History Post by email, delving into its archives and collections and sharing Haringey’s fascinating heritage with you.

Our wonderful collections are here to explore, and we hope we can bring some cheer and interest across the internet to you. Why not find out more about the borough where you live and the history of our communities?

We will be showing photographs, paintings, documents and objects from the museum and archive alongside thoughts, little histories and memories brought to you by museum and archive staff as well as inviting guest historians, local authors, young curators and volunteers to contribute too.

If you would like to sign up for a Daily Local History Post sent directly to you, please email museum.services@haringey.gov.uk and we will add you to our mailing list.

You will receive the following posts:

  • Memories on a Monday
  • Travel in Time Tuesday
  • Wander About Wednesday
  • Throwback Thursday
  • Forage Friday
  • Weekend Wonder

Past Daily Local History Posts will be added as PDFs below for you to explore.

The list will be updated regularly so do come back and check what has been added.

Stay safe, stay at home and have fun exploring your local heritage.
