I was very surprised when I got to Barlboro and found the Heritage Centre and was Very surprised to meet Tony and his Wife,who made me feel so very very welcome I was surprised there was no charge to go in, and on entering how much they had in such a small space and it did not look clutted,it was really very nicely laid out,and after traveling up from Hampshire,I am so pleased I managed to make a stop there for a visit
I got lots of info etc and it has already paid of with phone calls to family I have never met I am now 77 that takes some doing.
It was so good to meet you both and a Very big Thankyou
Pat and George Maxfield

We visited Barlborough to do some family history research. We had contacted Tony at the Heritage Centre in advance and when we arrived he was waiting for us with lots of information.
Nothing was too much trouble. We were taken to the churchyard to see an ancestors grave, and to Barlborough Hall, now a school, to take some photographs.
In the Heritage Centre there was lots of information to help people researching the area or just interested in the history of the village.
We spent a very pleasant morning there and are grateful to Tony for his help.
A recommended facility

First of all it's free! Obviously a labour of love by Tony and his team. There isn't anything he doesn't know about the area. There are many old maps and records from the late 18th century which pre-date the first national 1841 census.
