Since the early days of our foundation we have developed a substantial archive of records, documents and photographs of our local history. This has been thanks largely to local people kindly donating such material. Members of the group have undertaken a number of projects exploring aspects of our local history. Records and documents from these are also recorded in the archive.
Articles are regularly written based on this research, local knowledge and content from the archive. Several of these are included here. More extensive galleries of images and collections of other documents can be found in the digital archive and our book, 'Pulford and Poulton through the Ages'.
The archive is now being digitized and the first version of this 'digital archive' is available to members on application.
If you have any local historical records and would allow the Group to copy them for the archive (providing there would be no breach of copyright) the originals can be returned to you. Contact us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. The archive provided a valuable source of information for 'Pulford & Poulton through the Ages'.
