The Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre is home to a range of historic documents and artefacts, including workhouse and business records, parish records, petty sessions records and local authority archives.
The Medway Archives is required by the National Archives to keep the collection, which consists of paper, parchment, photographs and glass plates, at a steady temperature and humidity.
In order to monitor the conditions in the strong room, four Tinytag Ultra 2 temperature and relative humidity loggers have been installed.
The Tinytags, which are portable to allow for easy installation, produce readings that are checked by the archivists every fortnight.
This allows them to spot any variations in temperature and identify the causes of changes in humidity.
