Geoffrey Smith Archive

Launched during National Explore Your Archive Week 2015,
the Geoffrey Smith Archive is now online - click HERE



Welcome to the amazing historical archive of the village of Stradbroke, Suffolk, UK.

Stradbroke has a rich rural history and has been fortunate to be lived in by a long line of photographers and collectors of village life. This was recognised by the Stradbroke Local History Group who began building an archive in 1999 to preserve and share this shared history for current and future generations.

The archive is curated and preserved by the Stradbroke Archive & Record Association. Items for inclusion are welcome, please do get in touch to discuss this by clicking here.

We encourage your thoughts and memories too! Please use the 'Tell us more about this Item' section underneath each item to share more information with the archive.
