All Arnold Local History Goups media; books, photographs, audio files and videos will appear in these pages.

The group is the custodian of a large photographic archive comprising over 7000 items. These pictures have been recently scanned into JPG format and the group is working towards placing the files into a searchable database.

Whilst this latest Herculean project is being completed, we are still happy to locate and mail photographs from the archive if you have a specific request. But please be patient. Thank you.

Hi Tracy, Peters Row was situated between Nottingham Road and Church Drive, very close to Church Drive school. If you email me (secretary) on the email on the contacts page I can let you have images.

Hi, we are looking for photographs of Woodthorpe from around the 1970s. Any specifically of Somersby Rd would be great. Shops etc. Any help much appreciated.

I was born and brought up on Saville Road. Our house plot was believed to have been on the site of Arnot Hill House stables and kennels as my Dad was always digging up bones in the back garden.

Sandra, we contacted Bonington House about the trophy you refer to but unfortunately have been unable to locate it, if you could provide more information, we may be able to look into it further. Lynne
