Welcome to Fakenham and District Community Archive a website for those who enjoy a nostalgic look back at Fakenham and district in less recent times. Our pictures and memories can take us back in a way that nothing else can.

We are an enthusiastic group of volunteers dedicated to building a digital archive of pictures and memories from Fakenham and nearby villages. This website features only a sample of the many thousands of interesting items which have been shared with us since the archive was formed in 2002

We meet regularly in the Trinity Room in Fakenham Parish Church on the last Tuesday of each month between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm, where the complete archive is available to view. Some of our pictures await positive identification! Perhaps you could help put some names to those faces?

During monthly sessions our friendly team of volunteers are always on hand to scan pictures and gather information, so if you’d like to share your memories or pictures with us we’d be very pleased to see you.
Light refreshments are usually on offer in the form of tea, coffee and biscuits. So why not come along and join us, as we enjoy a sociable couple of hours chatting and sharing our memories of yesterday?

Fakenham Community Archive is a member of the ‘Fakenham Heritage Group’, which comprises of; Fakenham Museum of Gas and Local HistoryFakenham Local History Society, and Fakenham Community Archive. All three groups work together with the common aim of recording and preserving the heritage and history of Fakenham and district.
