The archive and local studies centre at Valence House actively collects and conserves records relating to the history of Barking and Dagenham and makes them available for research in the public reading room. The records of the Becontree Estate are one of the most popular resources held at the archive and local studies centre but are just one part of the wider history of the whole area.
