The Aims of the Trust are to research, discover and record Birchington's interesting 3,500 years of history. We have established a local museum/archive room in the Burley Gallery at the Library, where we can display some of our collected items and perform research for members of the public and local schools. We will also aim to make the material available for students to do their own research from this material.
The museum is open to view throughout the library opening hours; the room is manned and the archives are available to use on Monday and Thursday mornings from 9.30 to 12.30, and on Saturdays from 10 until 1 o’clock.
Our website contains well over 1000 pictures showing Birchington as it used to be, as well as a few as it is now. Also here are past copies of our quarterly newsletters, with many articles on aspects of the history of the village.
