The Woodhams Stone Collection was formed in 2011 to secure the future of two very significant local history collections for the communities of Malton and Norton-on-Derwent.

Mr Sid Woodhams has spent over 60 years colelcting objects relating to local businesses and trades, including items relating to the once familiar Russell's Brewery and the Co-operative Society, and tools from trades such as joinery, coopering and butchery.  There are alos a large number of old household items from around these two towns.  There are approximately 5000 items in the Woodhams side of the Collection, the bulk of which dates from between 1850 and 1950.  Mr John Stone has collected hundreds of postcards and photographs showing the streeets and landmarks of Malton, Old Malton and Norton and surrounding villages, fro around 1900 tot he present day.  Together with his large paper-based archive relating to local businesses, public notices, and advertisements for entertainment including dances, sporting events and concerts, his collection is a valuable source for tracing the history of Norton, Malton and the local area.  The Stone side of theCollection is made up of approximately 5-6000 items.

Sid and John very generously agreed to gift their collections tot he towns of Malton and Norton with the express wish that they should be displayed tot he public in the towns where they originated.  The committee has secured support fro the DEFRA-led LEADER fund, Ryedale Distrcit Council and Heritage Lottery Fund.  Since 2014, the Woodhams Stone Collection has been involved with six temporary exhibitions and nubmerous events throughout Ryedale to raise the profile of and access the Collection.  Our next step is to find a permanent home for the Collections.
