The Enfield at War Blog!
This blog serves as a source of information about Enfield during the First and Second world wars.

Welcome to the Enfield at War project blog. Enfield Council’s Local Studies Library and Archives have received £79,500 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for this project that will increase the understanding of the impact of the First and Second World Wars in Enfield. The project runs until September 2015, and will explore the story of the people, places and events which happened in Enfield during both World Wars. As part of the project we will be producing an on-line database of newly digitised wartime images, interactive kiosks points, wartime heritage maps, educational work packs for local schools, and an online web book with a collection of war time oral histories. Residents will also be invited to share their memories, photographs and other materials at two special “Enfield at War” Days and learn more about Enfield’s wartime history. It’s hoped that this blog will encourage readers to seek out more information about this fascinating part of Enfield’s history, and please feel free to share your knowledge, war time photos and thoughts with us on this blog or via e-mail at local.history@enfield.gov.uk.
