How you can help
In order to continue expanding this great resource we need YOUR help to find new material. So if you think that you have any images that you feel would enhance this collection of Marple and District, including photographs, postcards, drawings or even video,
then please get in touch with

We have the facility to photograph, scan and copy just about any kind of image without damage, including negatives, slides and even large old-fashioned glass plates. We will pick up and return your collection if you live locally or pay for recorded delivery postage if you are further a-field. We can even come to you and copy them in your home if you prefer not to let them out of your sight. Alternatively, for those of you with the ability create electronic copies yourselves, you can sent us your images by email or on a CD (please scan images at 300 dpi.)

We would also be happy to hear from you if you have comments about any of the images already in the galleries (have we got it wrong, or do you know something we don't?) or if you have any suggestions for improvements.

Enjoy your visit
