a  new website administered by local Fletchertown archivist, Mick Jane.

The old-time photographs of Mealsgate and its environs have been acquired over time from numerous sources. A number of them were given to a friend on CDR by a gentleman who lives in Cockermouth. Many of these old pictures have passed from hand to hand and I suspect some come from the collection of Mr & Mrs Marr, Mealsgate residents, who have an extensive knowledge of the local history of the area. Indeed, I believe that Mrs Marr's family once lived in The Old Post Office.

I should like to thank all those who have contributed pictures to enhance this website. Should you have interesting photographs relating to Mealsgate which you are able to send scans of, I should be delighted to consider them for inclusion on this site. I am particularly interested in obtaining pictures taken INSIDE The George Memorial Hall when it was being used as a Club. If I have inadvertently used a picture ón which you own copyright and to which non-commercial use you object please contact me and I shall, of course, remove it.
