The Tameside Local Studies and Archives Centre holds the archives and local history collections relating to the history of Tameside's nine towns (Ashton-u-Lyne, Audenshaw, Denton, Droylsden, Dukinfield, Hyde, Longdendale, Mossley, Stalybridge) and includes documents, books, maps, photographs, old newspapers and other sources for family and local history. Our records come from the council and its predecessor bodies, private donors, depositors and organisations and include records relating to places, organisations and people from the Tameside area, along with records relating to the Manchester Regiment.

Staff and volunteers will be happy to assist your research in areas incuding family history, finding out the history of your house, researching the local area or notable people either in person or via post or email.

Request to Deposit Archives

In addition to the records of the Borough Council and its predecessors, Tameside Local Studies and Archives takes in a wide variety of archives and photographs from private donors, depositors and organisations, and makes them available to the public.  Broadly speaking, we accept records relating to places, organisations and people from the Tameside area, along with records relating to the Manchester Regiment.


Anyone wishing to donate or deposit archives or photographs is asked to fill in this form as fully as possible.  Please do not bring in any unsolicited material, as it may be disposed of or destroyed at our discretion.  Unsolicited items received in the post will be returned to sender.
