We have important news for you all regarding the Devon Rural Archive. 

Many of you will know our Curator, Abi Gray, from your visits to the Archive, our monthly lectures or having attended a house or garden tour. Abi has been an integral part of all the Archive has to offer and her steadfast leadership has resulted in what the Devon Rural Archive is today. However, the time has come for Abi to move on from her role as Curator here at the DRA. We know you will all join the Volunteers and Trustees at the Devon Rural Archive in wishing her the very best for the future and in thanking her for all her hard work over the last 15 years. Abi will remain in post until the 15th of December 2023, when the Archive will be closing for Christmas. Please do get in touch before then if you would like to personally thank Abi or wish her well. 

Stay in the loop!
