With the good fortune of a grant from the Windfarm Community Benefit Fund, Stow Parish Archive is entering a very exciting phase from which we hope the community at large will benefit and enjoy.
Stow Parish has its very own Community Archivist which is probably a unique distinction for a place this size. Lucy Stock was our first incumbent and she has now headed to Glasgow to further her studies. To replace Lucy we have had further great good fortune to find Mary Craig. Mary is a professional and academic historian with extensive experience in running community projects. Expect some interesting and exciting developments for all!
