Dr Kayleigh Milden- Project Coordinator, Devon Heritage Centre

From the Grassroots, a history of parliament project based at the Devon Heritage Centre, has been recording political events in Devon from a local angle and charting the changes in post-1945 political campaigning. Through the research and dissemination activities, the aim is to explore the story of Devon’s rich political heritage as told by the participants themselves. The new archive of oral histories will remain in Devon as a valuable resource in political history for current and future generations.

Dr Milden will be discussing the project which has been creating a sound archive of people involved in local politics within the county from 1945 until the present day.
