Welcome to the Fontmell Magna Village Archive Society’s web site, our collection of information of Fontmell Magna Parish, which shines a light on the history of the place and its people.

This web site is constantly being upgraded and most recently we have added an extensive photo library which will contain, eventually, all the images, with short descriptions, that we have in the archive.

New articles are added from time to time and existing articles and photographs in the articles have also been upgraded, in many cases as a result of members’ personal research.

This will be followed in time by the uploading of our data base, which will allow the whole of our archive to be searched.

We look forward to contact with anyone with an interest in any aspect of the history of Fontmell Magna Parish – let us know whether there’s anything you’d like to read about our village or have any information that may be of interest to the Society.

While we are not a genealogical service, we would be glad to try to trace any of your ancestors who lived in the parish from the records we hold.

You can get in touch using the contact page.

Many thanks for visiting the site.
