Village Archive

My house is quite old. What did it look like before it was modernised?
My family is from round here. I wonder if there are any old photos?
How much did they pay for the beer to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria?

Answers to these questions and many more may be found in the Village Archive.
It has documents, photographs, posters, pamphlets, wills, maps, newspaper articles and much
more covering all aspects of Drinkstone life from 1749 until the present day – people, places,
events both joyous and sad, music, drama, religion, farming, crafts and occupations no longer
