Today's Additions to the Archive

Two more files have been added today. Firstly a valuable resource for anyone even remotely interested in parish churches: Richard Wells, a long-standing member of the Museum's Research Team, has taken very clear photographs to illustrate a complete interior inventory of Lyme Regis' Parish Church, St Michael the Archangel. The inventory itself is based on that made by the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments in 1952 (with permission from Historic England.)

Secondly, a timeline of the life of Molly Raison, a member of the well-known Wiscombe family, based on her recollections as given to Graham Davies in 2006, plus additional background research.
