Welcome to the

Whitwell
Local History 
Group

Homepage.

Much interest has been shown in the more recent 'living history' of the village in a new Facebook group called

Whitwell Photos and Memories

Please come and take a look, some great pictures and memories on there.

You will need to join the group to see the information.

 


Whitwell is a small village situated in the North East corner of Derbyshire, England.  It sits in a unique position where the great counties of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire meet.

Our group meets weekly at the Whitwell Community Centre at 7.00pm on Tuesday evenings.


My name is Peter Hopkins.  I am a member of the group with an interest in computers and the internet.  I originally offered to present some of the work completed on the Parish Survey, possibly in book form.  I was then asked to reproduce the book, 'Whitwell a Parish History'.  I thought this presented a great opportunity to publish the work on the Internet for all to see.

The book in it's slightly expanded form is now available to buy, (the millennium copy!) 

Sadly, some of the people responsible for 'Whitwell, A Parish History', have now become part of the history they cherished so much.

The book cost 5 plus P&P.   These books have now gone all over the world!

Photograph collection

We are pleased to announce, that with the help of Lottery funding, that our extensive collection is in the process of being digitised and made available for anyone to view.

The archive is available here

We welcome personal photos or memories to add to our archives

Previous photos are accessible on the 'Photo Page' here


Perhaps you are an old Whitwellian.  We would love to hear from you, and please feel free to add any comments/information on our site.  We are always grateful for copies of old photographs, or snippets of information to fill in a few of the gaps....

After receiving many requests for genealogy research, I decided to publish the results so that the information is available to any interested parties. These are available on the enquiries page.

Please contact us by typing wlhgAThopkins-uk.co.uk replacing the AT with @ as an e-mail address.
