Have you something tocontribute?
Explore North Devon is an innovative community archives project that is offering anyone interested in this beautiful and historic part of the UK
the opportunity to collect and research information about its distinctive local heritage and present it to a global audience through this website.
The project began in 2006 as part of the Archives 4 All phase of Access to Archives, a national initiative to make information on historical records
more accessible and to develop closer links between archive repositories and their communities, with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund
and Natural England/ North Devon Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Further funding has been provided by Devon County Council as part of its culture
development programme for 2008/09 to expand the range of participating community archives.
Explore North Devon provides opportunities for individuals or groups to contribute content to an ever-growing digital community archive and become
involved in research and data collection work in their area.

Explore North Devon is a partnership between Devon County Council (North Devon
