Teversal Heritage Group’s collection of documents, images and records has steadily grown since its formation. In the past the Group has shared this information on request with anyone wishing to carry out research into the area or their family history, or those who are simply curious. It has always been the Group’s aim to share these more widely which it can now do through digitising its archive.

The accumulated material provides a fascinating insight into life in Teversal in years gone by.

Quite often the Group encounters difficulties in identifying the locations and individuals in the documents and images so always welcomes contributions that may help solve the puzzle. If the information triggers memories that you would like to share the Group would like to hear from you.

The archive will increase as more items and information are accumulated so the Group welcomes any documents or information that can add to its records.

Please also bear in mind that our area is changing and what is current today is tomorrow’s history.
