CPLHS Document Archive – Thanks to a number of people that have donated or lent old documents to us we now have a significant collection of interesting historical documents that can be used to help us research the local history, These documents have been catalogued and described in an Excel file held by Nigel Mills, It is because of its numerous pdf files too large to be functional on the website that an index has been produced (see below). Guidelines can be found in the document, and should you wish to consult any of the documents please contact us through the Contacts page of this website. If you have any old documents, booklets, cuttings, parish magazines etc that you would like to lend us for our archive please let us know.
Here are some Guidelines to contributors to the Website, Newsletter and Transactions.
