Local History Archive

The West Hoathly Local History Group was founded in 1983 by Sheila Allen and a collection of historical local photographs was started in about 1990. Since then the amount of material has grown rapidly and in 2008 the West Hoathly Local History Archive was established as a separate entity specifically to maintain, develop and publicise the collection.

Archivist: Dr John E Ralph
assisted by Anthony Smith
