The East Midlands Oral History Archive
at the Centre for Urban History, University of Leicester, is pleased
to host the oral history collection of LANDshapes. Comprising 36
audio interviews and transcripts, these memories are a fascinating
resource for anyone interested in the National Forest and the lives
of its people.
LANDshapes is a heritage project designed and hosted by The National
Forest Company, working with local people to gather together information
about the heritage of The National Forest. This partnership is creating
an archive of knowledge and memories about the area, to be shared
by everyone. The National Forest is an evolving and flourishing
area - a landscape for the future whose growth and cultures are
celebrated by LANDshapes.
