Just a taste of Barlborough Picture Library

 

Barlborough Picture Library is a catalogued DVD of hundreds of photographs and information about Barlborough. The photographs were donated to the Centre by a Barlborough resident Mr. Andre Bradley. They were then scanned, categorised and information added at the Centre. The DVD was produced by Limestone Studios, Creswell. All proceeds from the sale of the Picture Library help to secure the future of the Resource Centre.

The picture Library is on sale at the Resource Centre Special Offer just  £9.99.
Here are a small sample of photographs for you to enjoy.
