Wanted Photographs of Welcombe and its inhabitants from 10 years or more ago, the older the better! A particular request for any old photos of Chapel Cottage?? We would like to collate an archive by copying these photographs (with permission) and keeping them together with any available information about them. These photographs will be shown on this page of the website as well as kept in the archive for reference by any interested parties in the future.

Devon History Brough Up to Date with Latest Technology

The Devon Record Office has opened the doors of its new home at Great Moor House, Sowton in Exeter and history buffs are already enjoying the new facilities. The new office provides, for the first time ever, accommodation for all the records in Exeter on one site, with sufficient expansion space for the next twenty years. The building incorporates all the latest in record office design including ‘passive environmental control’ to preserve the sometimes-fragile documents. Opening hours in the spacious new searchroom are 10 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday. The service remains free, following Devon County Council’s decision to remove the admission charges which have been in place since the early 1980’s.
