People looking at material in the research room

We will be closed on 21 & 22 April, sorry for any inconvenience

Our research facility offers an opportunity to delve deeper into the collections at St Barbe. Are you interested in learning more about your local family history, where you live or the development of local towns and villages? Or perhaps you’re a local historian writing a book on the area. Visit the research room to explore our extensive collection of photographs, postcards, maps, ephemera, books and information.

We also hold the parish records on microfiche and the archive of the New Milton Advertiser and Lymington Times

As of December 2020, we are pleased to announce that we now hold eminent local historian Jude James’ research notes. 

Staff and volunteers will be on hand to help you find out more.

If you would like to view or study our collections please contact with details of what you would like to research and your telephone number.
