Painswick Community Archives

Painswick Community Archives

Painswick Community Archives was launched on Wednesday 15th May, in a small ceremony at the Town Hall. The archives are based on the old files of the Parish Council, going back for many years, but now open to the public and with a searchable index. Other archives have been added, both physical and electronic, including a digital photo archive with over 1000 old photos of Painswick, and a searchable database of old issues of the Painswick Beacon - not yet complete but being gradually extended.

The archives have been organised by a team of volunteers, and it's hoped that they can be gradually extended to other subjects and by the addition of new material. They are currently accessible during opening hours of the Council offices, but there are proposals to add access through the Library shortly. More details in the June issue of the Painswick Beacon.
