Picture Scanning Day at the DRA. 
Thursday 20th April 2023, 11am – 3pm 

We would love to add your images of rural Devon, whether historic or modern, to our collection and preserve the scenes for future generations to study and enjoy. On Thursday 20th April the DRA team will be on hand throughout the day to scan your pictures for posterity so you do not need to part with the originals. 

Our visitors bring us an amazing array of images each year that they have discovered hidden away in family albums, in attics and cupboards. Help us preserve your local heritage by bringing in your photographs and postcards of rural Devon to be scanned into the DRA Image Bank.
