Welcome to the amazing historical archive of the village of Stradbroke, Suffolk, UK.
Stradbroke has a rich rural history and has been fortunate to be lived in by a long line of photographers and collectors of village life. This was recognised by the Stradbroke Local History Group who began building an archive in 1999 to preserve and share this shared history for current and future generations.
The archive is curated and preserved by the Stradbroke Archive & Record Association. Items for inclusion are welcome, please do get in touch to discuss this by clicking here.
We encourage your thoughts and memories too! Please use the 'Tell us more about this Item' section underneath each item to share more information with the archive.
The Stradbroke Village Archive launched in the newly refurbished Court House in Stradbroke on the 15th & 16th November 2014 as part of national Explore Your Archive week, in conjunction with The National Archives and The Archives and Records Association. Over the first week since being launched, the website has had nearly 13 000 page views! What are you looking for in the Stradbroke Village Digital Archive? Use the Contact Us page to let us know!
