Visit the Treasure House


I never enter the library without being welcomed by name and made to feel valued. You convey so quietly yet so graciously that you will do whatever you can to help me as I discover new books and as a result find my life enriched.
Like it! Nature re-envisaged. [Rhythms in Sculpture]
I had the pleasure of visiting the Treasure House. I had travelled over from Huddersfield and, in particular, was looking into the life of the Reverend Henry Allon D. D. who was baptised in Welton. I have visited the Treasure House previously - in connection with my family tree - and as is almost always the case I ran out of time. I think I need at least a week there - and that would be just to follow current lines of enquiry! May I thank all the staff - and if I recall there were at least three of them - who assisted me. The staff were friendly and very helpful and I am looking forward to my next trip to the Treasure House.
