Preserving and Sharing the Heritage of Mickleton
Mickleton is the northernmost village in Gloucestershire and sits at the foot of an escarpment on the edge of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has a rich history, a strong tradition in agriculture and market gardening with many historic buildings.
This archive was created in 2013 to digitise and preserve an important collection of historic photographs assembled over the years by the Mickleton WI. This work was undertaken with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and a team of volunteers who digitised the original collection and expanded it with more recent photographs, stories and articles about the social history and built environment of Mickleton. Booklets and maps were published highlighting the main points of interest and now this website records almost 1,200 entries which can be found via an interactive map of the village.

In recent years the village has expanded and we have many new residents whom we encourage to use this resource to learn about their village. Today’s events are tomorrow’s history – our volunteer work continues and we encourage locals and those with knowledge and experience of community life in our village to share their memories, photographs and information with us, so that we can consider it for the archive.
