Dales Community Archives
The site comprises private collections of local historical material concerned with the heritage of the ten parishes and townships surrounding Ingleborough hill in the Yorkshire Dales. In due course the site will expand to include material from across the Yorkshire Dales National park area.
The site provides access to digital scans of photos, old documents, wills, parish and school records and audio files of the memories of some of those privileged to have lived and worked in these upland communities. This material mainly covers the period from c1200 to present day.
The site is very much a “work in progress”. Additional collections will be added over the next few months as they are catalogued and digitised and by the early 2018 we should be able to offer access to over 2000 items of historical material, much of it not previously available to search on-line.
