Carbrooke Heritage Group

Back to Main Page

The  group was formed in March 2012, as a result of the production of The Wayland Partnership Group 'Village Heritage books', which showed  that a many people were interested in the heritage of Carbrooke and were keen to follow up on research produced for the book, as well as looking into other aspects of our heritage.


The Group has been established by and for the local community and will enable people to record their memories and experiences and demonstrate their pride in the local area. It will provide an opportunity for those involved to feel that they are valuable members of the community. The Group wants this activity to add to the quality of life and be enjoyable and worthwhile, linking the generations and to record the past for future generations.

Carbrooke Heritage Group has been established in order to encourage an interest and pride by residents in the heritage of the area they live in, to create a repository of local artefacts and record memories. To create a point of contact for non-local people to find out more about the village (and possibly their ancestry), and to work with other organisations in the community, towards improving local pride and amenities.

As a community archive project, all gathered information will be made available to those interested and it is hoped eventually to have it permanently available in community access venues, and on the internet.

We plan to put on events and presentations for the community to learn more of the Heritage of their community, organise visits to places of interest and offer the opportunity to local groups for their own fundraising. 

The first meeting of the Carbrooke Heritage Group was held in Carbrooke School on 1st March 2012, with 10 people present. We discussed lots of exciting ideas for community projects we can work on.

Next meeting Thursday 5th March 2020  7.00pm in the Village Hall. All welcome.
