Family Photos

These photos are mainly from the local archives. Some originate from families albums, some from old newspaper cuttings, others have unknown origins. In many cases the full names were not recorded, but the majority of the family names, locations and approximate dates are known. Collectively they portray the past way of life in the village. They are arranged in approximate chronological order, the earliest from the 1880s, and the most recent is from the 1970s. The latest additions are marked with *
