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.
We are open Monday – Friday 10am-12pm.
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 email@example.com with details of what you would like to research.
