The website team has developed a separate Archive sub-site WW1 Men to present material from the book ‘They Were a Wall’ produced as part of the WW1 Commemoration project.
The existing site has been moved to a new advert-free platform with a more modern style and, in due course, will be simplified to focus on articles about Wheatley History.
We are currently digitizing all the existing material currently stored in the Archive Room, and sometime next year – subject to funding – we hope to add this to the new Archive website.
A preview of the new Archive website may be accessed via the top-level menu link “WW1 Men“. It has an interactive map showing where in the village the men lived.
