A wide-ranging collection of film and video material relating to the borough of Sutton. The collection includes amateur, home movie and municipal films that record many aspects of borough life from 1923 to present day.
Our archives are kept separately from the local studies collection and comprise primary source material relating almost exclusively to this borough. The main exceptions to this rule are records of the Wallington (previously Croydon) Magistrates Court and a large collection of copies of Surrey parish registers. Again, material is held in a variety of different formats - paper, parchment, magnetic tape and video. Because archives are, by their very nature, unique, readers are asked to observe a number of guidelines designed to protect this material.
