Washburn Archive

Fewston, Yorkshire

The Washburn Archive is a collection of over 12,000 items with particular relevance to the Washburn Valley in North Yorkshire.

The archive includes documents, a large number of photographs, a series of films comprising an oral history project, the findings of an on-site archaeological excavation and the temporary exhibitions relating to the Valley which have been on display in the Washburn Heritage Centre from 2011 onwards. Also, a permanent exhibition about the Valley is located in Fewston Church adjacent to the Heritage Centre.

The archive is held digitally and new items are added on a regular basis by a team of volunteers working under the guidance of an archivist.
