U3A Hadleigh Castle

The “Their Finest Hour” Project is a nationwide digital history project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and run by the University of Oxford.

Our aim is to digitally preserve the stories and physical heritage from the Second World War era which is still kept by the UK public and store this in a free-to-use online archive for the use of future generations.

As part of our project, we are coordinating over 70 events throughout the UK – these events are known as Digital Collection Days (DCD). At our DCDs, people are invited to bring along objects, photos, documents and other physical items from the Second World War era, as well as stories that connect them all, to be digitized (scanned or photographed) and uploaded to our online archive.

There is a “Their Finest Hour”  World War Two DCD taking place at Hadleigh Library, Essex SS7 2PD;  Saturday 4th November 2023  9:30 am to 4:30 pm.
