What we are
The Benfleet Community Archive is a digital archive dedicated to collecting photographs, documents and memories of Benfleet’s history.
Who Supports Us
The archive was formed early last year under the auspices of Essex County Council Libraries in conjunction with the Essex Record Office and funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
This launch event has been possible due to funding from Countryside Estates.
