Marvels of the month

Cover of Surrey Bird Club quarterly bulletinEvery week, a wide assortment of archive documents and local studies material from a variety of sources passes through our doors to join the six miles of records in our strongrooms.

Behind the scenes, we work closely with the records, diligently cataloguing, cleaning, conserving and packaging them so that they can be made available to the public.

It's work that we thoroughly enjoy, and everyone here has a tale to tell: whether it's the story behind a favourite book, the background to an unusual collection, or how we repaired a very fragile document.

Each month, the Surrey Heritage teams showcase their own particular "Marvel of the Month".

2024 Marvels

May's Marvel of the Month celebrates the dedicated naturalists or 'citizen scientists', who have studied and recorded the county's flora, fauna and other natural phenomena.

For our April Marvel of the Month, we discovered how careful conservation work on treasured documents at Surrey History Centre helps preserve our history for future generations.

Our March Marvel of the Month explored the life and portrayal of a Surrey diarist, author, horticulturalist, servant of state and founding Fellow of the Royal Society.

Our February Marvel of the Month celebrated the life and work of one of Surrey's lesser known artists who painted some of the county's most striking landscapes.
