WATCH: Sarah Charlton: The Carrington Scrapbook

For subtitles please click ‘CC’ in the bottom right of the screen.

In her video and presentation, Sarah takes us through the recently catalogued Carrington scrapbook. Compiled throughout the 19th Century, it’s a fascinating insight to life in High Wycombe through the eyes of the wealthy Carington family. In a talk which is very much an insight into the works of an archivist, as well as a record of life in Victorian Buckinghamshire, Sarah displays carefully preserved pages that tell of local political struggles, a close friendship with royalty, and even the well-respected Lord Carington’s gentle brush with the law.
