Cullompton History Archive

This website aims to provide a record of previous heritage and history projects and research and be a place to showcase new research. Our aim is for the website to be a local resource that brings together all the history research relating to Cullompton.

This website has been created by transferring the information that was already stored on touch screens in the town centre as a result of a previous “Wool Trade” project and then building on it by adding buildings to the interactive map of the town centre. In order to get our programme underway we researched the history of the town centre buildings in order to gather background material on which to base our ongoing projects.

The aim of the programme was to breathe new life into the Cullompton High Street by bringing new and exciting creative and cultural activities to the heart of the town and to build on what makes Cullompton town centre special, including its history, heritage and buildings of architectural interest. Creative Cullompton offered a wide range of community activities throughout the three years. To find out more click here

The Cullompton History Archive was one of the projects funded by Creative Cullompton. The building histories and town centre tales that emerged from the various histories projects were showcased in the town centre through exhibitions, storytelling and performances, helping to enhance the sense of local pride and improving the perception of the town centre.
