The Combe Down Heritage Society Archive at Ralph Allen CornerStone
With the opening of the CornerStone last year it has been possible to move our archive from the temporary office we had been kindly loaned at Isabella Place into our own repository in the basement of the new building. This cavernous room below the visitor centre is ideal for storage of all the records and artefacts that have been collected and donated to CDHS over the years. It also has the preserved remains of the stonelined cistern used to steep the grain as part of the malting process when the building was used as a brewery.
We have installed tables and shelving bought with a grant from the Arts Council and work proceeds on completing the archiving project. This will safely preserve the physical objects in appropriate storage media and record our collection on a computer database. We would love you to help us with this so if you are interested please contact David Bishop, our Archivist on 01225 425320.
