Photographs Throughout The Years

Children with pram outside the Old Chapel with old school on the left.

 The following pages contain just a small collection of the many photographs, taken throughout the years, that we hold in our vast collection of over 1,000.

We welcome new photographs and documents that we can scan and place in our computerised archive. After scanning all photographs and documents will be returned to the owner.

We are also conducting Oral Interviews and if you live in or are a former resident of the village and would like to put your memories on record we would love to speak to you.  Please see our “Contact Us” page.
