A photo from our collection

The Museum has acquired many artefacts, documents, photographs, books, maps, records and press cuttings that relate to Uffington.

These are the main areas of our collection:

  • – photographs of local people and places, covering the last 120 years. All are indexed, and the indexes can be searched for specific names, places or dates. The photographs have been scanned and can be viewed on a computer screen
  • – oral history recordings that were made by the Museum during the 1990’s when a number of local people were interviewed. Copies of all of those recordings are available for visitors to listen to
  • – video recordings of local events and films with a connection to the village. These can be viewed on the computer.
  • – copies of the Uffington census records for the years 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891, 1901 and 1911
