The Merton@750 project was an exciting new endeavour to commemorate Merton’s 750th Anniversary and to capture life at Merton College in 2014.
As part of the project, the Library and Archive Team collected memories and records of Merton College, painting a picture of the Merton community in its 750th Anniversary year. These records have been added to Merton's 750-year-old archive to enrich our understanding of life at Merton College for generations of Mertonians to come.
The Merton@750 project may have drawn to a close, but we're still encouraging everyone with a Merton story to tell, to share it with us. You can add your own story at Share Your Stories and upload pictures, photographs or scanned documents to accompany your memories.
