Old Photographs relating to Stokesley

We have added some old photographs to the website. I have displayed small versions of the photographs, but clicking on a photograph will take you to a larger version. If you hover your mouse over a photograph, you will see a display of what we know about the photograph (currently that is not very much!).

If anyone can provide any other information on any of these photographs, we would be grateful, and would add that information to the website with your approval.

In addition, if anyone has other old photographs, we would be grateful to have sight of them. We would normally copy the photographs, then return them to you. We would be very happy to attribute the photograph to you.

You can contact us by emailing the website using the email address in the page "Contact Us", or by telephoning the secretary at 01642 711875.
