Join us every Thursday in the archives starting on Thursday, January 19th.  Explore the archives of the Hamilton Town House Library.  Volunteers are being sought to identify local landscape heroes from Hamilton to Strathaven, New Lanark and all places in between, no matter how famous, infamous or obscure, living or dead. 

Drop-in sessions will take place in Hamilton Town House Archives every Thursday, 11am – 7pm, starting Thursday 19 January 2017, until the end of February. Volunteers are encouraged come along and pursue their own interests and ideas about Local Landscape Heroes, from family connections to historic weavers from Stonehouse, farmers, Estate owners and ordinary working men and women. All research will feed into a final trail highlighting sites of interest around the Clyde and Avon Valley and an artworks gazetteer.

Drop-in sessions take place in the Hamilton Town House Archives every Thursday, 11am – 7pm between Thursday 19 January and March 2017. Please get in touch with CAVLP Heritage on the details below to book your place, or discuss how you can volunteer for the project if you’re unable to attend the sessions.
