The website has been produced by Whittlesey Museum as part of an ongoing project to make information about the local history of the Whittlesey area available to the general public.

This site focuses on information connected with the period of the First World War, including the years immediately before and after hostilities where relevant.

The main aim of the site is to allow easy access to primary sources: original letters, photographs and other material. However, museum volunteers have also researched several noteable individuals from the time, and their findings are presented under “Biographies”.
