Scarborough Community Archive

The Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society started interviewing and recording local residents' memories in 2006. Photographs were scanned and reminiscences typed up.
The project was made possible thanks to the National Lottery Fund and over the past 6 years over 600 people have been involved and over 300 hours of volunteer time has been committed.
All information has been given freely and its accuracy depends entirely on the contributors involved.
The community archive is made available for all to share and welcomes any new contributions, additions or corrections.
Email : content@sahs.org.uk  for more information.
