Salcombe History Society was formed on 3rd March 2010 at a Public Meeting held at Salcombe Primary School...
As this project continues, we are now realising the enormity of the task. We have a small committee who are working hard to gather as much information as possible: Oral History, Photographic History, Parish Records, Video History, Census, Programmes, in fact anything that relates to Salcombe's past...
This will be an active organisation preserving today's news which becomes tomorrow's history. We want to encourage young and old alike to delve into their past, and share it with us and the world. We cannot afford a museum site so for the time being will make the website our museum. We meet every 3 months to hold Open Evenings to show our latest finds and acquisitions; this has proved very popular. Many old pictures and ephemera are brought to these meetings as well as family trees which are invaluable to our research team.
