Wigan and Leigh Archives Online

Archive Manuscripts Collection

The Archives hold two large collections of personal papers and miscellaneous manuscripts, the Miscellaneous Manuscripts Portfolio (MMP) and the Personal Papers Collection (D/DZA).

Both of these collections hold records created by individuals in their personal or private lives, ephemera collected by the Archives and other records that are not easily classified as part of the archives of larger organisations.

The collections provide a wealth of social and personal histories and some of the most interesting and diverse records in the Archive collections.
