About me‘Beyond the Point’ is a heritage archive organisation which is set up by two teenagers Liam Heatherson and Joe Mander. Because we are surprisingly young-aged compared to those usually interested in local history, we are able to give an innovative and new perspective to the field. We approach archiving local history by exploring the remains of it within South Essex’s landscape, which allows us to pitch towards younger people as well as more senior enthusiasts. This is due to our content heavily involving exploring local heritage which is sometimes ‘hidden’ (for example wartime tunnels amongst a heavily wooded area), which appeals to young people more than the traditional run of old photographs and childhood memories. We believe this makes us unique.
