The Huguenot Library was formed from the printed and manuscript collections of the Huguenot Society and the French Hospital libraries, and contains the most complete body of Huguenot literature in this country.

Huguenot Society

Since 1957 it has been housed within UCL Special Collections, and is currently located at The National Archives . The main focus of the collections is on the history of the Huguenots in Great Britain and Ireland, but the Library holds material on a much wider span of Huguenot-related topics, and covers the history of the Huguenots in France and the wider diaspora.

Both the library and the archive collections contain significant sources for genealogical research. Save The Whitechapel Bell Foundry – How to submit your objection.

Landmark History Albums

This makes the detailed research undertaken on each Landmark digitally available to all, an extensive repository for every kind of historian and others to mine. Ever since Landmark was founded in 1965, every building has had its own History Album, a scholarly but readable account of the site’s history and those who lived there. Each is written by Landmark’s in-house Historian of the day to help Landmarkers get the most out of their stay, and we now make them available to download.

Although every album has been carefully researched, sources are not generally cited in full given their general readership.

An article and full set of photographs is published in MidCentury issue 07, but here are a few additional questions I asked while I was there!
