  The Walsingham Archives

Our Lady's MirrorThe Archive Room at the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham is contained within the College. Here is kept a wide range of important documents and material from the last 80 years. These include complete sets of The Walsingham Review and its predecessors (including the early Mirror), photographs, documents relating to the Master of the College and the Guardians, Priests Associate and The Society of Our Lady of Walsingham, recordings and videos.

Sir William Milner with Our Lady of Walsingham,  October 15th, 1931The archives were professionally organised and catalogued in the 1980s. The present archivist is currently working on expanding and developing the range of material including sound and video records. As the archive is developed, appeals will be made for material to fill in gaps and for help with identification, particularly with photographs.

The Golden Book containing the names of the earliest donors to the ShrineThe archive is not open to the general public but the archivist is happy to deal with inquiries. More information can be found in the Walsingham Archives pages (see below), including an outline catalogue, lists and dates of Masters and Guardians of the Shrine and dates of the various Shrine buildings - plus a comprehensive Index.
