"Muriel Lesterís personal papers are kept at Kingsley Hall in Dagenham. The archive includes correspondence, diaries, notebooks, publications and photographs, and the papers of Doris Lester. It is a fascinating and historically important record of the Lester sistersí work in Bow and Dagenham, and also of Murielís world travels in the cause of international peace. The Muriel Lester archives will be made accessible through an on-line catalogue, digital images and a  new interactive website."

We took part in conservation workshops at Kingsley Hall in Dagenham. Working on the Muriel Lester archives, with training and supervision by a conservator.
