There are various ways that you could help.

I AM ALWAYS INTERESTED IN RECEIVING OLD PHOTOGRAPHS RELATED TO THE AREA - I am happy to come and collect them - scan them- and then return them immediately. I'm interested in places, events or people.

I'm not looking for professional contributions (I wont turn them away) I am looking for contributions from people who, like me, love the area and want to show the best of it to the world. If you're like me and getting on in years you might find helping out to be very stimulating and worthwhile

If you do send photos please include details of the location and if it is of something you feel is important to the area then include details of why. I will return them as soon as possible. Contributions for publication can be e mailed, posted or telephoned. I don't mind how they get to me as long as they do.
You will find all the contact details here
One of the things I am looking for is information about any of the crew members of the pleasure yacht Monarch that sank off Tunnel beach, Ilfracombe 26th August 1887. Of the 22 to 26 people on board 14 were drowned. I have managed to trace relatives of Charles Buckingham, one of those that died and would like to find more about the others on board. Anyone related to one of the survivors with a story to tell would be good. Here's a drawing of the tragedy

I'm more than happy to get a phone call from anyone who has a titbit of interesting information that could be used, even if it means I need to do some research to fill out the detail. The information can be about a place a business a person or a family. I am trying to make this the best site about our beautiful area, both interesting and accurate with a mine of information. There are many sites about us but a lot are very innacurate and rarely updated. This site is updated at least once a day, often many times.
