The Parish Council would love to create a photographic archive of Thornley Past and Present.

To do this we’re asking you if you have any photographs of the village.

It doesn’t matter if you scanned them or historical photos passed down through your family, we’d love to include them in the archive.

Have you any of a relative working in the Thornley Colliery or pictures of the front street.
What about you in your younger days, in a school photo, or just messing about with friends in the street, or those of an important event, or Jazz Band Parade.

If you have any photographs and would like to share with us so we can build up an historical picture album of Thornley please let us know.

Please send any images to or call in to the Village Centre and we’d be happy to add them to the album.
