The Spondon Historical Society has been collecting material of local interest for nearly three decades and has amassed a huge collection of photographs, maps, documents and other items which reveal a fascinating insight into the history of Spondon and surrounding areas.

We now hope to put many items from our archive onto the website for all to see and enjoy.

You can look through the archive material in a number of ways:

We've currently got just under 300 items added to our online archive so far and hope to keep adding more and more as time goes on.
