Preserving the Heritage
The History of locks Museum gathers together documents and artefacts that tell a specific part of mankind's story . His fundamental need to provide shelter and security to himself and his family is paramount and of course the way these enclosures are secured, the actual hardware of privileged access, is also equally paramount; this principle applies to all groups or layers through society right up to government level.
This page acknowledges the many people that have shared our vision; you too can input in innumerable ways and help us record and more fully understand the back stories to the hardware we preserve. Contact our curator with your thoughts, snippets or even objects; we very much appreciate your input.
Thank you for your input & support
