The Friends of Historic Essex is a charity which supports the Essex Record Office. Find out how to join us on our membership page.

The Essex Record Office (ERO) is the county archive for Essex, and looks after documents, maps, images and sound and video recordings which together tell the story of nearly 1,000 years of our county’s past.

The Friends of Historic Essex support ERO by:

  • Raising money to purchase and conserve documents
  • Publishing books and copies of historic maps
  • Purchasing materials for education activities
  • Volunteering at public events
