The Hampshire Archive

The Hampshire Archive

The Hampshire archive continues to evolve from the original 1999 project. Innes recorded every square mile of the county in the final year of the last century – he is now developing a project called Saving History – the renovation of glass plates and old photos specific to Meonstoke, Corhampton and Exton.

The plan is to gather as many old images of the villages as possible and create a one stop database, bringing them back from scratched glass plates to publishable quality in current formats that will protect the images for another hundred years.

There will be a DVD version of the project including interviews with villagers about local history.
