We’ve made it even easier this year to give one of our Adopt a Piece of History certificates as a Christmas present: it’s now possible to adopt a whole archive collection. For still only £35 you could let someone adopt the archive of Calke Abbey, our Woodward cartoons collection, the records of a school or parish, the Franklin archive – even all our railway plans! Just have a look on our catalogue or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can’t quite find what you’re looking for.
Of course there are also still our 50 Treasures which can all be adopted for only £20 each and if you feel like splashing out take a look at our £50 option, which allows you to become part of the record office’s official archive. See our Adopt a Piece of History page for all the details and an order form.
All adoptions directly benefit our collections as they help pay for specialist packaging materials, so a great big thank you from the Conservation Team to all our Adopters out there!
