Is the climb to the top of the church tower available for visitors, like it is at Ranworth church. Or does one need to get permission? I would like to be able to get some video footage from the top.

Regards, Geoff & Wendy

Hi Geoff and Wendy

St Catherine's Church is always open during the day but the tower is not open for visitors. I guess this is for safety reasons.

I will send you a PM with contact details for the churchwardens. If you need a special visit they are the people to ask.

Nigel

I have added a new downloads section to the Archive Group website.
Amongst other things, you can now download all our booklets for free. Its a lot cheaper than buying the printed version.
Discover Ludham is particularly good. You can still get a printed copy of this in Throwers.

I have added a new Video section to the Ludham Archive website and also created a You Tube Channel.

There are various videos of Ludham interest on there at the moment and there is a lot more to come.

You might be interested in the video of a Broads Holiday in the early 1960s. This film has footage of the Fairy Garden.

Also of particular interest is a film of change over day at Southgates boatyard in Horning. This was taken in the mid 1970s. I am sure many of you will enjoy this film.
At the Ludham Archive we are still trying to find out who the owner of this film is. If you know anything please will you let me know.

Link is www.ludhamarchive.org.uk/video.htm

Hi All

You probably know that there are lots of photographs of the Boardman Family on the Ludham Community Archive website. The Boardman family built How Hill House, first as a holiday home and later (extended) as their main home.

Although there are many photographs on the site, there actually are many more available. As a bit of an experiment, I have greatly increased the number of pictures from one of the albums (1897 to 1906). I have actually split it into 2 pages so it downloads in a reasonable time. This is still only a fraction of the pictures available but it is a much wider set.

I would be interested to know if this wider collection is of interest to members. This is the link to Page 1: http://www.ludhamarchive.org.uk/bdm9706.htm  There is a button which takes you to page 2. The rest of the albums can be seen from the index page. If there is a lot of interest, I could expand these albums too.

Best wishes

Nigel.  Ludham Community Archive Group

Just added a nice collection of photographs of Ludham Village from the air. They are not old but they are good.

Thank you Nigel it looks so different from above. It took me some time to work out where places are.

I have also updated the Nita Townsend album which was not working properly on Internet explorer. Any comments on the pictures would be welcome.
