What happens today soon becomes tomorrow’s memory! Archives are those documents that no longer have an everyday use, yet have been kept because of their historical value and importance for community memories and local identity. In essence they are the ultimate ‘community memory,’ a unique and irreplaceable source of educational information about the past, extending over many years. Images and information archived here are related to the heritage of Silloth Green. The aim is to build and sustain a sense of history in Silloth, and provide opportunity for the local community, children in schools and visitors to the town to learn about the heritage of the Green.
