We are interested in old
photographs which are tucked away – and fading away
– and which may be in danger of being “tidied”
into the bin! These can great insights into times gone bye.
If they are damaged, we can restore them.
We are interested in other materials such as bills, letters,
old college project reports which we can photograph to share
on the website. Can you help?
section of the website has all the photographs which we have
scanned. At its core is the collection of 8,000 slides by
George Read which we have now scanned and are sorting into categories
to make them easily accessible. (The process of loading them
onto the website will take us
another 6 months but you can see the beginnings with about
1000 images available in the Gallery.) The slides
show all aspects of Tickhill over many decades. We hope our
Project will fulfil George's ambition which, in the words
of his late widow, Mary, was to leave his collection for the
benefit of the community to give others the opportunity to
see his unique collection.
