Welcome to Fakenham and District Community Archive, a website for those who enjoy a nostalgic look back at Fakenham and district in less recent times. Our pictures and memories can take us back in a way that nothing else can.
We are an enthusiastic group of volunteers dedicated to building a digital archive of pictures and memories from Fakenham and nearby villages.
This website features only a sample of the many thousands of interesting items which have been donated since the archive was founded in 2002
We meet regularly on the last Tuesday of each month 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm. in the First Focus Building, Oak Street, Fakenham - adjacent to the Fakenham Connect Council Offices at the top of Library Hill. (See map)
Join us over a cup of tea and a biscuit for a friendly chat! You can see photos of Fakenham and surrounding villages, bring in your own photos to be scanned into the archive, watch a slideshow, browse through our photo albums or search the whole archive on our laptops.
If you're unable to come along, you can send us your pictures via e-mail or write to us with your memories or questions via the ‘contact us’ section of this website, or telephone 01328 863377.
