Created in 2014, the Reepham Archive works to acquire, preserve and catalogue material that relates to the history, people, trades, businesses, groups and events associated with Reepham and surrounding villages for open public access.
Most of the material is textual and photographic; the oldest manuscripts are more than 200 years old and the earliest photographs date to the mid-19th century.
The Archive has a small team of volunteers who transcribe original manuscripts into searchable PDF documents to facilitate research.
The material in the Archive is organised on the principles of the International System of Archival Description and uses the Omeka content management system to manage and publish its collections. The material is searchable using keywords, including dates.
All original and master copies of documents and photographs are stored in archival-quality media.
The Reepham Archive is located upstairs in The Bircham Centre. It is normally open from 10 am to noon on the first Wednesday and Saturday of each month; at other times by appointment only.
