Potton History Society was started – and is still run – by a group of volunteers keen to preserve the past for future generations to enjoy. Since 1977 a vast amount of documentation, photographs, models, audio recordings and video footage, much now digitised, has been accumulated and archived. It is now safely stored in a growing number of folders, racks, and filing cabinets in our specially-built Annexe behind the Mill Lane Pavilion.
This website aims to show a snapshot of what we have and, for some, that will be enough. But for dedicated family historians, academics or just those keen on every last detail, we invite you to come and delve! We are also keen on donations – from uncle’s diary of his time working in the tannery, to gran’s wartime Potton cake recipe, or beer mats from long-closed Potton pubs! Don’t throw out old documents /family photo albums – let us see them please!
We have a growing membership and a yearly programme of fascinating monthly meetings held on the 4th Thursday of the month at the Community Centre at Brook End, Potton.
