So you can imagine my joy when I found The Unique Heritage of Modbury. In fact, I can't even remember how I found it. I only had one or two ancestors from Modbury itself, so I didn't think that I would necessarily be that interested in what I found - if there was anything there.
This site is a Community Heritage Project, which has been funded by the Local Heritage Initiative, Lottery Fund, administered by The Countryside Agency, with additional funding from the Nationwide Building Society. From its main page, you can see what is contained therein:
- A comprehensive database of historic information and parish records, provided by the Modbury History Society.
- A selection of historic photographs from the Modbury Baker Collection that is currently held in the West Devon Records Office.
- A record of the historic town sites in Modbury that have been identified with mounted plaques.
- A Time Line exhibition of ten panels of Modbury Heritage Topics.
