Artefact Archive

Explore our 50+ years of cultural history – dip in!  The volunteer archivists (or detectives) of the MPA50 project in 2016 spent months making a start on the sorting and cataloguing of the thousands of items in our archive, you can read about it on their blog. There’s still much to do, and the pilot project only just scrapped the surface of the enormous task of digitising Artefacts so we can share them. The collection will continue to grow. If you want to share your story about MPA, please get in touch.  We are very grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for making the MPA50 project possible.


In addition to the categories below you can visit the archived version of our previous website HERE. Some of the links no longer work, but it still contains a lot of information and images.
