Preview Donated Albums

These preview albums recognise donators who managed to supply larger personal collections or entire family albums. Individual or grouped images will ideally be fully presented among specific subject pages, but as that often takes time, this provides a preview with referenced storage, which could hopefully prompt anyone else into identifying potentially related knowledge.

Smart phone WiFi may have encouraged photo sharing through social media sites. Sutton-in-Ashfield Facebook groups appear to keep discovering more historic town photos. So there's surely more Huthwaite images to be found, perhaps including your own. If any become indirectly or broadly shared, credit will whenever possible identify original donators. Consideration was given creating a specific Huthwaite group, but social media does require monitoring, which would distract from long term commitment into wider research behind continually updating this well established website. So I retain studious preference for personal contact via email.

Having gratefully received copies of postcards, photos, family albums and memorabilia covering a wide range of historic Huthwaite interests, most were directly donated by residents. Very pleasing however, to find widespread interest shared from readers abroad. Magnificent nostalgic scenes coming from near and far help portray and better record many village interests including genealogy. A few individual examples may indicate how distance is no object for unrelated discovery of remarkable Huthwaite memorabilia.

This enlightening permit is just part of the reward for being able to solve one mystery faced by Cromford Canal archivist. Mr Hugh Potter queried if coal noted loaded from Hucknall as early as 1831 could be coming from Huthwaite. By sharing supportive proof how this was possible, Canal Permit Hugh provided tonnage shipped from our Old Hucknall Colliery, destined not for the long presumed Mansfield town, but for broader markets via a tramway into Pinxton Wharf.

Huthwaite Remembrance

An antiquarian book dealer in Wales, Mrs Nicol Dale found these three silk ribbons among pages entitled Light in the Dwelling by Favell Lee Mortimer. A front page entry written by Rev J W Hutchinson unfortunately faded away, whereas this past traditional type of memorial has beautifully preserved those Huthwaite names.
