the seal of the medieval priory

Following the revamp of the website and the index launched on 6 April 2010 there can now be found photographs linking directly from many entries in the Index.

The main website pages for groups of old pictures of Walsingham are:

Unidentified Early Groups This was the first photographic page when the website was created. Since then most of the 'unidentified' have become identified and now appear on other appropriate pages. This page will be adjusted in due course to show only those photographs for which we still need help. Thumbnails link to full-screen size.
1927 Photographs Some early photographs of Walsingham that came to light in 2007. Thumbnails link to full-screen size.
Guardians' Gallery 77 pictures of Guardians.
Groups of Guardians 3 group photographs of Guardians 1955, 2006 & 2011, with a smaller gathering at York 2010.
Fr Patten's Photograph Album 1931 Fr Patten's own photographs of the gradual rise of the Holy House and covering chapel from June to October 1931: there are two web pages of photographs.

Fr Patten's Photograph Albums 1938 Fr Patten's own photographs of the building of the Shrine Church, February-November 1937.
