Historical Archive

Highfield Park Trust has amassed a considerable archive of material relating to Hill End and Cell Barnes Hospitals. With the support of the Heritage Fund and the University of Hertfordshire, the Trust has been able to index and catalogue this archive to ensure that it can be shared more easily with others. The physical archive is safely held at the Highfield Park Visitor Centre and electronic copies are held off-site.

To access the phyical archive, please make an appointment with the Park Manager. If you are unable to attend in person, please email the Trust with the details of the documents you require and we will forward them to you.

The index of the records we hold can be seen below and relate to the points on the History Trail.

Highfield Park Trust wish to thank everybody who has assisted us in the creation of this archive. Space prevents us from accrediting every individual or organisation in the abridged index below, but we are very grateful to everybody who has very kindly taken the time to share their artefacts and memories with us. Your details have been maintained in the full indexing system we have developed as well as the archive itself. We also thank the Heritage Foundation and the University of Hertfordshire for their support in enabling us to progress the project.
