The Centre is now ready to receive visitors... it has been transformed from the old laundry during the days of the Boarding school.
Presentation Sisters Archival and Heritage Centre, Matlock.
The new Archival and Heritage Centre was at one time the laundry area for the Convent High School in Matlock.
The building comprises of two floors
Downstairs the Archives are housed and an office for the Archivist
There is also a Reading Room available for anyone wishing to use the Archives for study / research. Eventually these may be a resource
for college/university students
There is a display area / gathering room; - a tea-bar and a disabled toilet
This area will tell our story which will include:
• our beginnings in Cork, Ireland and the charism of Nano Nagle
• our going “one pace beyond” – to our world
• our foundation in England and the story of the Presentation Sisters in England in the various place in which we have live and ministered
• show our present ministries.

All this will be set in the context of the cosmic story.
We also hold the story of the Presentation Convent High School for Girls and we welcome our past pupils contacting us.
We hope that the centre will be a place where people can gather and meet; renew friendships; learn about Nano and the Presentation Sisters; think about our Universe and its wonders – and the need to care for our earth....

The Centre has been created by the generosity of our benefactors and we are deeply grateful to anyone who has helped in anyway.
The museum service Renaissance East Midlands have been generous and supportive in setting up the Centre.
However, we do still need (financial) help to continue the development of the Centre.
