Recordings archive

WFOHW has been collecting its own material since 1983 and has recordings made by others from the 1970s; there are now more than 800 recordings. Though the Workshop is an independent voluntary group, since its inception it has had a close relationship with the Vestry House Museum, Walthamstow – the local studies museum and archive for the London Borough of Waltham Forest – where our recordings are stored.

If you have recordings – perhaps from a project you ran, or from family or friends about aspects of life in Waltham Forest – we would be happy to take them into our archive and make them available for others to share. Contact us with details of what you have.

When we began we used some of the best and worst equipment available at the time, but there are more than 400 audio cassettes in the archive which are of varying quality. We now record digitally and quality has certainly improved since 1983; most more recent recordings have been digital on accession to the collection.

Our digitisation programme is now complete, with our paper records and all the historic cassette tapes stored digitally. The Workshop’s main activities are part of the unfunded voluntary group and resources are always limited.
