Latest ACquisitions

Yate Heritage Centre has an active collecting policy and we are regularly getting donations of interesting items into the collections in different forms. Recently, we acquired the Keith Jones collection of mining images. This is a fantastic record of coal mining and historic images of the Yate and Coalpit Heath areas. We will aim to get these into the public domain as soon as possible!
