Oral History Volunteers

Information on volunteering to capture local memories for an extraordinary archive.


Volunteer archivist Pam Bater has been collating and developing an archive of information and images about the history of Chiswick House and Gardens since 2006.

This has involved sorting and indexing a large amount of material which has been deposited at the site over a number of years. Ultimately we hope to make much of this material accessible to the public. 

People’s memories of Chiswick House and Gardens provide a fascinating and personal record and Pam and her colleagues are keen to include these in the archive. There must be many local people who have interesting stories to tell and perhaps even photographs of themselves, friends or family members enjoying the gardens in days gone by. It would be especially sad to miss the opportunity to capture the memories of some of the more elderly members of our community.
