The Staffordshire Past Track site – now in its seventh year – features more than 23,700 photographs, paintings, prints, documents, video clips, maps and more relating to the history and heritage of Staffordshire.

The site is managed by Staffordshire County Council’s Arts and Museum Service and Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Archive Service and more than 500 new resources have been added in recent months.

Visitors to the featured content section on the site can also enjoy a series of online exhibitions.

County Councillor Ben Adams, Cabinet Member for Communities and Culture said:

“The Staffordshire Past Track website provides an excellent resource for anyone interested in the local history and heritage of Staffordshire.

“With more than one million visits over the past year, the site is becoming increasingly popular as the fascination in our local history continues to grow.”
