Lyminge Historical Society Archive Catalogue List

In the table below you will find a list of some of the document files held in our repository. These are the ones that have been identified and catalogued over the last two years.

There are other documents, files, photographs, pictures, maps, books and sundry items that are yet to be catalogued.

All our work is done by volunteers and their time is also taken up with other projects and of course their private lives. So, whilst we will endeavour to completely catalogue all our holdings it will take some time.

It is possible to visit the repository but we have to make arrangements for a member of the society to accompany any visitors. If you want to visit please contact our Secretary or any other member of the LHS Committee who will do their best to arrange a mutually acceptable date and time. Before contacting us please see the notes at the top of each location’s listing.

Some items on the list that have been digitised and uploaded onto this website there are links to the item. These can be recognised by the now traditional means of blue under-line and if clicked on will open the file in a separate window.

Location    Description
