This is a database engine with scanned images of archival information about and from Claymills and the Burton on Trent area. The site has its own dedicated
search engine which just requires key words to search. It provides access to all the pictures and documents that have been scanned so far (841 at the last count). As this is a long term project it was decided to publish work done so far.
Note the new catalogue page and document index on the search results page. (comments please).
