Woodford Archive

Creating and maintaining an archive of important images, documents and memories in the words of those who lived the history in and around Woodford cum Membris.

The idea for a village archive for Woodford Halse was first suggested in late 2007 by Yvonne Roberts, Cador Roberts, Julie Williams and Phillip Bainbridge.

The original team members of the Woodford Halse Archive

The Archives

The archive photographs and documents that were collected had to be scanned separately, then documented and placed into one of the files; along with an accompanying printout of its description.

There are several folders and file books which are currently being translated for upload to this site to achieve the goal of making the archive material collected available to those who are interested.

This is an on-going project, the images taken today will be the archive of tomorrow. If you have any images, documents or stories that would be suitable, please let us know.
