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.
Based in Fakenham Norfolk, we are an enthusiastic group of volunteers dedicated to building a digital photographic archive of pictures and memories from Fakenham and nearby villages. This website features just some of the thousands of interesting pictures which have been donated to us since the archive was founded in 2002.
During our monthly sessions visitors can browse our complete archive on laptops, look though scrapbooks and albums, watch a slideshow or bring in your old or recent photos or cuttings to be scanned into our archive (and returned). It’s a very sociable occasion and is held on the last Tuesday afternoon of each month. Coffee, tea and biscuits are provided, along with lots of interesting conversation and memories of yesterday.
Fakenham Community Archive is a member of the 'Fakenham Heritage Group', which comprises: Fakenham Museum of Gas and Local History; Fakenham Local History Society and Fakenham Community Archive.
All three groups work together with the common aim of recording and preserving the heritage and history of Fakenham and district.
Photographs and media that appear on this website are the personal memories of people from the Fakenham area who have kindly given their written consent for us to archive and publish their memories. This may include print reproduction, public exhibitions, presentations, newspaper or printed media and electronic publication via our website or social media channels. We acknowledge that some items submitted to the archive may breach copyright or public privacy laws, therefore anyone wishing to object to items found within our pages should do so by contacting us so that we may consider removing them.
