  The findings of various smaller research projects are detailed via the links below.

These may have resulted  from projects carried out for clients [and reported with their permission]; from the researching of  a photograph of local interest; or the fortuitous discovery of some item of local history or family history that has been further investigated.

Some of the photograph research has developed from finding items by the local Speight photographers and some of these may be detailed on the Speight Photographers page.

Some of these project findings have been or can be incorporated into lectures tailored to your organisation.  For a  listing of current lectures given and FUTURE PRESENTATIONS can be found by clicking the link.
