Many local people will be familiar with our regular ‘Local History Corner’ articles which appear each month in the ‘Fakenham and District Sun’ newspaper. Every month we hope to publish an old photograph from the Fakenham & District Community Archive. Our articles first appeared in the December 2011 edition. This on-line adaptation of the ‘Local History Corner’ gives those who may not receive the 'Sun' newspaper an opportunity to view our monthly articles.
All pictures can be expanded by simply clicking on the thumbnail images.

This is a photo of the last letter collection from the East Barsham post box. The man in the photo is David Utting,
but we don’t know the identity of the very smart postlady nor the date. Can anyone help us?
You can contact us via this website or find us on Facebook.
Picture update; David Utting and Jenny Newstead makes the last letter collection from East Barsham.
If you’d like to see many more photos of people, places and events in and around Fakenham from recent times to more than a hundred years ago, you’re invited to come along to our next community archive session on Tuesday 29th January from 2.00 – 4.00 pm in Fakenham Parish Church.
You can browse our full archive on laptops, scrapbooks and albums, watch a slideshow or bring in your own 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, biscuits are provided, along with lots of interesting conversation and memories!
