On the 18th December 2015, participants of the Invisible Boundaries project visited the Derby Local Studies and Family History Library to gather information about the incredible heritage of the Arboretum Park.
It was a great journey into the past and it was a new experience for everyone. The Arboretum Park has more than 175 years of history and it was interesting to find so many news and curious facts related not only to the park but also to the people who had an impact in the development of this place (e.g. Joseph Strutt, John Claudius Loudon…).
During the visit to the library, participants had the opportunity to go through a wide range of original sources including maps, plans and photographs as well as written material.
More Research sessions will be shortly organised. Keep in touch and follow us for more updated.
