The HHA Archive was first set up in 1984, five years after the formation of the HHA. The Archive includes books, original and transcribed documents on local history, maps, photographs, and artefacts all relating closely to Hungerford and the immediate surrounding area.

One aim of the Hungerford Virtual Museum has been to make these records more easily accessible on-line. They are made available for local historians for their personal research, and are not for publication or other reproduction. Work is ongoing to extend the list of material available on-line.

Please note: wherever appropriate, we try to add links to archive documents and other references under the appropriate article of the Virtual Museum. The list below includes only those items that do not have links in the appropriate articles elsewhere on this website. We recommend that you look at relevant articles first. If you are not successful then look at the list below.
