Medway local history and archives

Facebook

Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre is the place to visit for anyone researching the history, geography and people of Medway. We cover Rochester, Strood, Chatham, Gillingham, Rainham and surrounding villages and communities, including the Isle of Grain.

Due to the imminent move of Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre to new premises we are unable to consider any potential donations at this time. If you are considering making a donation, please e-mail malsc@medway.gov.uk (for the attention of the archivist/librarian) and we will be able to advise on the procedure.

 

The current Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre will be closing on Friday, 3 March 2017. We will be relocating to our new site at 32 Bryant Road, Strood, where we will be opening again for service from Tuesday, 2 May 2017.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new location on 2 May.
