This opportunity are been brought to MHS members through our societies links with the New Forest National Parks community archaeology department.
On the 12th of September the New Forest community archaeology department are offering a free coach trip to the National Archives in Kew. The coach leaves the main car park in Lyndhurst at 07.45. It will return to the main car park by about 6.30 m. Access to the records held in the National Archives is free. There is a cafeteria at the site where lunch can be purchased. You need to book a place on the coach by clicking on the link below.
If you have not visited the National Archives before you will need to register for a readers ticket. These are free. The process takes about 30 minutes on your first arrival at Kew. I strongly advice you go to the National Archives website to review the criteria for obtaining a readers ticket, especially the pieces of ID you need to bring with you. This link will take you there: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/about/visit-us/ This is a fantastic opportunity to research your own family history as well as the history of Milton Parish and past events of national importance.
I hope that members of the Milton Heritage Society can attend this event. I look forward to seeing you there.
