Local History



Barrow Hill Roundhouse did not stand on its own and was part of a much wider picture.  Looking through our archive collection there are many documents relating to the local railways, industry and the people.


On these pages are articles, photographs and videos drawn from our archives about local items that have links with Barrow Hill.  Where possible we have declared the author or the photographer but in some cases we have no record and the phrase 'found in the archives' has been used in our accession register.


We reproduce them here in the understanding that items were donated to be seen and used, not just left in a drawer.  As a museum, we are also not using them for commercial gain, merely to inform .
