The Main Parish Archive - Offline Items

The main Widecombe Parish Archive consists primarily of documents and other artefacts that have been stored in the Parish Chest in Widecombe for many years. These documents etc are now being handed over to the Devon Heritage Centre for safekeeping, once the digitising process is completed.

This page lists, in summary form, those documents, photographs or other artefacts from this archive that are NOT available online, primarily because they are of too recent a date. Some are missing from the archive, although may have surfaced under other reference numbers.

Personal visits to research the available documents will be possible once the Widecombe Archive Centre is open.
