Wolverhampton Archives is a treasure trove of local history.

It holds collections of historical documents, deeds and records providing information about our past. These are our collective memories, allowing society to hold government and organisations to account.

These help us explore our identities, underpin research, inspire creativity and they connect generations with our stories from the past, to the present, to the future. Archive records available to the public help us to keep history alive.

Friends of Wolverhampton Archives,  and Local Studies are an independent group promoting, supporting and  encouraging interest in the work of the Archives.

FWA host Monthly meetings with guest speakers on local historical topics of interest, Family history sleuthing courses for beginners and packed monthly members newsletters - visit our join us page for membership.
