Hi All

Thanks for your further encouraging comments. The Archive Group is working on more stuff for the site. We have just got a new set of interesting photographs and it all needs to be sorted first.

I would like to make it clear that I had not stopped posting. It's just that I have been a bit tied up with other things. The World Scout Jamboree took a big chunk out of the summer and then I was away in America for a while. Then there were other Scouting projects and the Ludham Archive website. Also, the technical problems with the site made posting photographs difficult or sometimes impossible so I have stopped doing that for now. I still take photographs. There are collections on my own website although that is set to change over to Flickr over the next few weeks.

Best wishes

Nigel

I don't know if any of you noticed that St Catherine's Church Tower has been covered with scaffolding this summer. This is because the tower needed quite a lot of restoration work.

I have now added a section on the Tower Restoration to the Ludham Archive website www.ludhamarchive.org.uk It has got some great pictures taken while the work was going on as well as information about what was done, how and why.

The scaffolding is down now and you will see that the clock has been repainted and gilded, but it has got no hands at the moment. Just in case you are wondering why, it is because we need to raise another £4,000 to get the clock mechanism overhauled.

I have also added a bit to the website about the Mardling Seat which I am sure many of you will have seen. There is also an update on Goodwin's Mill.

It's all under the "Interesting Stuff" button.

There is lots more to come so keep looking in.

Hi, Took a look at the site today.  There is indeed much excellent material there.  You deserve congratulations.

Just one grumble... (It wouldn't be me if I didn't grumble! Smile ) Like the-norfolk-broads.co.uk it self, most pages do not display gracefully when viewed on a screen less than 1024px wide.

Thanks for all your kind comments about the website. I have put some further updates on it and I am currently processing a large quantity of new archive photographs which will eventually find their way onto the site (well some will anyway).

I must apologise for the width of some of the pages. I had to make a decision about this and I decided to look to the future which is going to be wide screen if it is not already. I wanted to get quite a lot of information onto the main index pages and so you do need 1024 pixels to view them to their best advantage. However, many of the other pages with the photographs and other stuff will display OK on smaller screens. I would be interested to know how many people are finding this to be a big problem.

Hi All

I have been working on some further updates to the Ludham archive website, and I am sure they will be of interest to Forum Members.
The Ludham Archive has been given access to the photograph albums of the Boardman Family. I am sure that many of you will know that Edward Boardman built How Hill House as his holiday home. The albums contain thousands of photographs, many of them superb quality. they show the Boardman children growing up and many are taken at How Hill or other parts of the Broads.
It will take some time to complete the process of scanning all the photographs, so for now, I have put a selection of early photographs on the archive group website. This will enable those interested to get a first look at the collection. Only 1906 to 1910 photographs are on the site so far, but more will follow.
These photographs are amazing and if you have an interest in Broads history, I can recommend them.

Go to www.ludhamarchive.org.uk and click on the Archive Photographs button.

As always, I would be interested in your feedback. Do you find these photographs of interest? Would you like to see more etc?

Glad to hear that you found them interesting. I just think they are fascinating.

Anyway, I have now added two more albums covering 1912 to 1914. This includes the 1912 floods and lots of interesting pictures of boats and the rivers round How Hill.

Unfortunately, I can only give you a glimpse of what these albums contain. Quite a lot of the rest is not very relevant to the Broads or to Ludham as it shows the Boardman family on holiday or at their main house in Norwich. Despite this, the pictures are full of interest.

The next album is scanned and I will put it onto the site in the next day or two. After that, there will be no more until the end of February when we get the next batch for scanning. There are some real treats in the 1914 - 1915 album, but that will have to wait for another day.
