What's this section about?

These pages tell some of the history of the Highfields area through images and text which have been researched and chosen by young people who meet at Highfields Library.

A mix of historical archive images and current photographs taken by the young people themselves accompany interesting facts about Highfields. The young people who worked on the project meet at Highfields Library and form the Home Schooled Group.


This section is broken down into the following subjects:

History of Highfields
