Welcome to Wrington Thru the Lens, a project conceived and curated by Wrington resident John Rubidge. The project began in 2017 and seeks to find old photographs and records that help visually tell the story of Wrington’s social and industrial heritage.
With help from local volunteers and history enthusiasts who appreciate and care about Wrington’s heritage, the ambition is to create a digital archive of photographs and stories related to people, places and events from Wrington's past. The project is supported by Wrington Local History Society, Wrington Village Association, Wrington Parish Council and Wrington Village Fair.
Over the next few years our aim is to borrow and scan photographs, as well as documents and local history records, from private collections and publicly available material, to create a digital archive of Wrington, as captured on camera. As the saying goes ‘every picture tells a story’, we aim to eventually publish a book telling some of the stories behind the photographs.
