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 in the Trinity Room at Fakenham Parish Church on
the last Monday of each month (except Bank Holidays) between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm, where the complete archive is available to view. Some of our pictures await positive identification! Perhaps you could help put some names to those faces?
During monthly sessions our friendly team of volunteers are always on
hand to scan pictures and gather information, so if you’d like to share
your memories or pictures with us we'd be very pleased to see you. Light refreshments are usually on offer in the form of tea, coffee and biscuits.
So why not come along and join us, as we enjoy a sociable couple of
hours chatting and sharing our memories of yesterday?
