Introducing this website

This is one of several archives in the South East Essex Community Archive Network {SEECAN}   which can be found here.
These vigorous,  dynamic heritage and memory websites contain photos, memories, stories and historical information related to our local areas;  and they are all FREE to browse! Each archive has links to the other SEECAN archives and similarly appropriate resources.

About us

The Hadleigh & Thundersley not-for-profit archive is managed by a group of volunteers with a broad range of experiences. People in the areas of Thundersley, Daws Heath and Hadleigh have particular interests in seeing presentations, visiting our pop-up displays at fairs and learning more about the area through buying our publications.

Most years we present themed topics to audiences numbering around 100.  We’re always interested in new recruits, whether for working on displays, editing the web-site or as potential attendees at a talk.  So, if you’re interested in volunteering or have questions or information you can share,  please contact us at
