Scope and content

The Bampton Community Archive came into being in 2002, the brain child of Jo(sephine) Lewington ably assisted by Tony & Lis Page. A request was sent out for old photographs, documents etc and Tony and Jo plus Roy Barratt spent many hours scanning and entering items on to a database. An exhibition was put together about the Shirt Race assisted by the SPAJERS who organise the race. From then on, three exhibitions a year have been put on in the Vesey room and after a few exhibitions had been and gone, it was decided to create a catalogue of the exhibitions. Tony learnt to publish and he produced other items for sale which enabled the Archive to purchase the necessary equipment to do a good job. It has to be said that Downton Abbey external scenes being filmed in Bampton has been a real gift horse bringing in coach loads of tourists. The Archive committee made the decision right at the start to have quality items of memorabilia only for sale and the profits have enabled us to have the equipment we need plus the money to repair the wonderful old Grammar School which houses our library and the Vesey room. Now, in March 2017, the roof is being repaired and the upstairs will be brought back into use. We are truly blessed with local people with great skills who give their time and skill for free and that's enabled us to look to the future with excitement.
