Appeal for lockdown memories

We're looking to collect stories, experiences and objects relating to everyday life in Buxton during lockdown for COVID-19 and the weeks afterward. We want to create a historical record to show people in the future what it was like living in Buxton during this extraordinary time.

We're looking for people to send us suggestions of what they think should be added to our collections. We'll look through the suggestions and make a selection to add to the museum's permanent collections. Send your suggestions by email to
