The sounds of part of Leicester and Derbyshire are being collected to create a digital audio archive for future researchers.

The Affective Digital Histories project focuses on Leicester’s Cultural Quarter and Glossop’s Howard Town and Whitfield Wards from 1970s to the present day.

It hopes to gather sounds reflecting their industrial heritage to show how the areas have changed over time.

The aim is for people to explore and research history through sounds.

It is believed the city and the market town would be the first in the UK to have a digital audio archive.
