Welcome to the Fontmell Magna Village Archive Society’s website,as we celebrate 25 years of collecting, collating, researching and archiving the history of the place and its people.

Presently we are preparing for our next Exhibition entitled “Fontmell Magna  Parish at Work”  to be held in the Village Hall – July 26th, 27th, 28th  2024

We will endeavour to upload to the website many of the exhibits from the exhibition  as part of our continuing project to digitalise the Archive for greater community access.

This website most recently had an extensive photo library added which will contain, eventually, all the images, with short descriptions, that we have in the archive.

This will be followed in time by the uploading of our database, 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 and 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.
