Welcome the Redditch Heritage Centre & Historic Archives.

This site has been created to present information we have on the Histoty and Heritage of Redditch and the surrounding area.

We don't profess to have all the information that exists on this topic, only that which Redditch residents have be kind enough to donate to us.

Also, we have not yet finished digitising, formatting and publishing all the data we have.  As fast as we publish data, more is donated and, after viewing this site, we hope you will donate to the site, even if it is just your memories of Redditch.

With reference to the Carnival site, we are also seeking you help to fill in some of the gaps in the data that we have. Specifically we are looking for carnival magazine for the years we do not have and any missing names from the "Royalty" listings on the year pages.

We the volume of data we have, and continue to publish, we unfortunately make mistakes along the way. Typos, transpositions, mis-interpretations and just plain errors.  We apologise for this but ask you you just to jot down the page and the problem and send it in. Once we know about it we will correct it in due course.

We have tried to structure this site in a logical manner and in a way that you can easily find what you are looking for.  Just follow the menus and you should "drill down" to the detail on the site.  Again if you find links that don't work or srend you in the wrong direction please tell us and we can correct it.

In fact, that's about all the help we can offer. The more you visit the site the more you will understand what it contains.

The fact that you are reading this is pleasing to us because it means people are using the site.

If you like what you see, tell others, if you don't tell us, .
