Over the next three years, we’ll be digitising around 10,000 unseen black and white images from the extensive James Ravilious and Roger Deakins photographic archives and making them publicly available on a new fully searchable website. A host of new volunteering opportunities are on offer to assist with the digitisation, cataloguing, and preservation of the images, as well as the collection of oral histories from people with special insights into the photographs.
There’ll be lots of opportunities to take part in this project, which we hope will expand the Beaford Archive into a unique record of rural North Devon’s way of life.
Join us at our free events, where we will share information about the opportunities available, display some of the captivating archive images, host expert speakers, and celebrate the local heritage of each community.
All are free to attend and unticketed, so please feel free to drop in! Featured talks from local speakers connected to the project are from 3:30pm and refreshments are provided throughout.

In addition to the afternoon 'New Perspectives' event, you can join a FREE walk led by Devon Wildlife Trust at the Halsdon Nature Reserve from 10.30-12.30pm to discover the locations where James Ravilious was inspired to photograph his extensive Beaford Archive. Meet at Ashwell carpark.
To continue the conversation, the walk is followed by an optional lunch at The Royal Oak Pub, Dolton. Call John at the pub on 01805 804288 to book your place.
