The archives consist of documents, photographs and a few small artefacts, all donated by those interested in the history of the parish. We also retain Oral History interviews. The archivists are based in The Hamilton Room in Church Street and the display board outside the Hamilton Room is regularly updated with new displays.

An exhibition is held each year;

2013  Two Decades a Century Apart – 1840s and 1940s
