Dean Heritage Centre Art Gallery DIGITISATION PROJECT
We are currently undertaking a large digitisation project in an attempt to make our collections more accessible to visitors and researchers. Over the next two years we will be transferring information and images for each artefact in our collection onto a new database that will be accessible to the public onsite.

In 2011 the DHC, in partnership with 'Voices in the Forest' and the University of Gloucestershire secured a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to purchase , preserve and display the Dennis Potter archive. The archive comprises material spanning several decades of Potter's career and includes handwritten copies of scripts and documentation relating to his well-known works as well as unpublished works and initial drafts. Centre staff and volunteers will continue cataloguing and digitising this archive to enable access for research and academia.

To further enhance the archive and exhibition the DHC would like to include artefacts, memorabilia and memories from the local area. If you would like to donate items or memories to the archive please contact the centre on 01594 822170 or email
