The Parish Church of St John the Baptist holds a community archive for the Ermine Parish. This is includes a great number of photos, plans, cuttings and other documents on the history of the church and the Ermine Estate. The earliest items date from the mid 1950s, when the estate was being built, up to the present day. The eArchive contains copies of most items contained within the archive.

The Church is very grateful to those who have donated material to the archive and helped in its organisation and care, and have constructed and now maintain this website. The eArchive was produced with the help and support of the digitisation services of Bishop Grosseteste University College Lincoln.

This site is currently under development however you can look at our entire collection of the Ermine News from 1957 to 1965.

More content will be added to this site along with more features so please check back in early 2010.

The Parish Church archive is comprised of a series of files compiled, organised and maintained by church members, and some single depositions by individuals. The whole eArchive can be searched via a Google Custom Search Engine (CSE) below.

Currently only the Ermine News can be searched, however more content will be added soon.
