    Celebrate Heritage Open Days with a tour of the Bolton Archives Strong room on Saturday 21 September. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Heritage Open Days. HODs are a chance for communities nationwide to come together to learn, explore and have fun by sharing the treasures on their doorstep. The strong room is not usually accessible to the public but we invite you to join the archivist to take a peek inside at some of the treasures from Bolton's Archive collections. From the oldest to the biggest we will have a range of historical document on display to give you an idea of the type of records we hold and how they could help you with your family or local history research.
