Photographs are a powerfully emotive record of our memories. They have the ability to portray a unique ‘snapshot’ of a place, time and moment. From an archival perspective they are a record of our history and heritage.

Each of our galleries have been created from a small sample of both contemporary and historic photographs donated by private and family collections.

We are currently in the process of digitising our entire collection and will make it publicly available. Our collections are actively used for research by academics, historians, family historians and community groups.
