About Armadale

Oral History Project

The romance, the intrigue, the heartache and the triumphs of Armadale's yesteryear are being captured digitally and transcribed as part of an oral history project coordinated by the Birtwistle Local Studies Library.

Everyone has a story to tell - that's why the City of Armadale is using 'oral history' as a method of obtaining and preserving the history of the district.

A team of volunteers conduct and transcribe interviews so that they can be made available in written form.

Excerpts from selected interviews are now available in digital form below. The excerpts are sure to whet your appetite and are great for research purposes.

Full interviews and transcripts are available at the Birtwistle Local Studies Library.
