Riccall and District Community Archive Group
Riccall and District Community Archive Group was founded in 2002 and supported by grants from the National Lottery Awards for All scheme. It holds a collection of over 1000 digital images, some maps, a small library of books of local and historical interest and a collection of personal papers.
The digital photographs date from the mid 19C to the present day.
A project in connection with the Parish Poor Rate Survey of 1906 has been undertaken to record the families who lived in Riccall at that time. Photographs of the properties are being linked to the details in the survey.
A study was carried out into local farming during the 20C to reflect the many changes, ‘From people and horses to computers and robots’. A booklet and DVD was produced and copies of the DVD can still be obtained.
