The Friends were established in 2005, as a charitable association whose purpose is to
support and assist the Priaulx Library and its work.

Then and Now

An animated blend of the Ivy Gates from 2018 and 1904.  The arches have not changed at all, unsurprisingly.  I have my doubts about the children in the old photo. Going by the wall height, it suggests that the children were between two and three feet high – unlikely.   The children were, in all probability, at later to give a bit of human interest to the photo.
