New Lapford archive

Noel Parry reports that Lapford now has a compact and fascinating archive, constantly being updated. On June 6th it mounted a history of the village at the Devonshire History Day at Chulmleigh, and as a feature of the village’s historic Revel it put on a history of the village school. This involved acting out the school’s history from entries in its log books of 1865, 1895, 1935 and 2015. Head teachers, Rectors and the children took their appropriate parts, and with original registers, photos and contemporary documents it proved to be a fascinating and vivid picture of village live over those 150 years
