Orwell Past

We have a large archive of photos and documents that we are gradually adding to the site, so do keep checking for the latest pages. 

We welcome your memories, photos and reports of village activities - both historic and recent. Just follow the directions on our Home Page and we will edit and add your contributions to the site.

The links on this website are shown by being underlined, but they do not appear in blue as is usual. We apologise for this deficiency, and suggest that anything that is underlined is likely to be a link to another page.

There has been an earlier Orwell history website, created by Wimpole Resident Steve Odell. Although the site is moribund, it still contains much useful information, and is well worth a visit. It is here. Among the useful items is a list of people from Orwell who emigrated to Australia, and links to newspaper reports relating to the village.
