The People's Record
Recollections and Regeneration
Hadleigh Castle will form the backdrop to the Olympic Mountain Biking event.
These montages were created as a result of a photography workshop for young people, part of the People’s Record of Hadleigh, February 2011.
The Essex Record Office also worked with the HLF-funded Hadleigh and Thundersley Community Archive to collect oral histories from Hadleigh residents, asking them for their personal recollections of Hadleigh and how they felt about the current process of regeneration in the town and, closely allied, their responses to their hometown being selected to host the 2012 Olympic mountain biking event.
