Buckland Brewer History Group have a large collection of photographs and welcomes donations of copies of more images of Buckland Brewer and its past residents. Ideally these should be scanned and emailed to us at but if this is difficult, do get in touch and we will make other arrangements. Please do not send us your original photographs as we would hate them to get lost or damaged.

We are in the process of indexing our collection and details of the photographs that we hold will appear below. We are happy to share digital copies with those who are interested but please be aware that some of the images are subject to copyright restrictions.
