Barnscan Community Archive
The Barnscan group was set up in 2000, initially to record the local history of the Barnsdale area, which includes the villages of Sutton, Campsall, Norton and Askern, by collecting old photographs and reminiscences and to record these for the future. A series of events was held to gather information and from these, a CD of images was produced with the help of Awards for All funding.
Since that time, a programme of talks has been held each year, mainly on a local theme, which has proved popular.
A recent development is the Facebook page, where all the images previously available on CD are now displayed and information on future events can be found. It is also hoped to have a website available shortly.
