Wellington College Heritage website

22 September 2022

We are very excited to introduce our new Wellington College Heritage website, www.wellingtoncollegehistory.co.uk, where we showcase and explore the College’s fascinating history and heritage.

In particular, the website is the home of our recent ‘Wellington Through The Decades’ project, to which all those who left Wellington prior to 1962 were invited to contribute. The wealth of material which they provided has enabled us to build a rich and vivid picture of life at Wellington during the 1940s and 1950s.  Their reminiscences have been compiled into pages on topics such as food, living conditions, study and leisure at College, and are now available for you to browse. More topics are still to be written up, and we will be adding these over the coming months.

In addition to these pages, the website also contains unique archive films of the College in past decades, as well as recordings of all our recent online heritage talks and events. You can also listen to podcasts recorded by College Archivist, Caroline Jones, on aspects of Wellington history, and explore content from some of the exhibitions which have been staged at College.

The website is freely accessed via the link above, and we invite you to explore it at any time. On Wednesday 28 September at 6 pm, you are invited to a live online webinar to guide you around the site and its contents. To register for this free event, please visit www.eventsforce.net/heritagelaunch The event will also be recorded and available to watch afterwards. We have also produced a help sheet on navigating the website, which can be accessed by clicking here.
