Forerunner of Orwell Past & Present

Orwell Community Archive Group was the forerunner of Orwell Past & Present, and had built up a digital archive of Orwell's history, using the many photographs, documents and reminiscences offered by local Orwell residents. After you click on their website link, http://archive.ccan.co.uk/group.aspx?GI=19 you will be able to see the pages of photos and documents added to date by clicking on 'Images'.

Orwell Past & Present have naturally drawn upon the images recorded within the Orwell Community Archive Group, for illustrating existing articles/pages. 

In January 2010 Orwell Community Archive Group published a selection of photographs from the archive under the title '20th Century Orwell through the Camera Lens'; this can still be purchased from Orwell Past & Present at: info@orwellshistory.org.uk price £5 plus postage.

Once on the Orwell Community Archive Group Website, you will also be able to see the archives of other Cambridgeshire villages by clicking on 'Places'.
