Local Studies & Archives
Waltham Forest Archives and Local Studies Library hold a wide range of manuscript, printed and pictorial resources for research into the history of the Waltham Forest area and its communities.
We can help if you want to research:
(1) Your family history
(2) Development of the local area
(3) The history of your house or street
(4) Subjects for a school project or for academic research
Waltham Forest Archives and Local Studies Library service will be relocating to Walthamstow Library in early 2024. From 23 November 2023, the Searchroom will be closed temporarily in advance of our move.
