Unlocking Exmoor's Heritage
Follow the progress of this project via the Library page on this website under Resources or via Twitter on Archivist@ExSocArchivist. The purpose of the project is to assess, conserve and preserve the significant amount of materials that the Society has amassed over 56 years and to make this collection available by a variety of means to everyone, especially students and researchers. Funding has been secured from the Exmoor Society, the Exmoor National Park Partnership Fund, charities and private individuals. The project has recruited an Outreach Archivist, Dr. Helen Blackman.

The library, archive and resource centre will be formally opened on March 19th 2015. To read the most recent press release from January 2015 please click here. Please contact the archivist if wanting to do research work.
