Ryarsh Village Archives
We have a large amount of historical documents – planning applications, receipts, account books etc. If you would like to have a look at this please email to arrange – firstname.lastname@example.org
The book exchange was created when the Mobile library stopped visiting Ryarsh. We have a huge selection of books – both fact & fiction. Cookery, gardening, history, biographies – almost anything you can think of. The book exchange is attended on Saturday mornings from 9.30 – 10.30 but can be accessed at other times when the hall is open. It’s the ‘go-to’ place for your holiday reading. We also have a satellite book exchange at the old phone box in Chapel Street – this is mainly children’s books and games.
