Staffordshire Newsroom - National Lottery Funding Secured for Staffordshire History Centre

National Lottery funding secured for Pringle Richards Sharratt’s Staffordshire History Centre.

Over a thousand years of Staffordshire’s history is to be brought to life in an exciting new heritage project thanks to National Lottery funding. 

Bringing together three incredible collections from the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Archive Service, the County Museum and the William Salt Library; the project will create exciting and imaginative ways to connect Staffordshire people and their stories.

Staffordshire County Council and its partner, the William Salt Library Trust, have received a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of £3,964,000 towards the Staffordshire History Centre project. 

Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project will include an extension to the existing Staffordshire Record Office on Eastgate Street in Stafford, incorporating the William Salt Library.

The Library will be restored and will retell the story of the building, as well as William Salt and his collection.
