Axis Historical Society - Barry Archive



 Welcome to the Barry Local History Online Archive. Which is effectively Barry Town's first ever online museum. A concept of the Axis Historical Society - Local History For Barry South Wales. Registered Charity no. 1052998. Now proud to be the only independent registered charity wishing to see Barry have a museum in its own right. We collect anything and everything that has a historical connection with our town. Photographs, Documents, Artefacts. To see just a fraction of the historical material that relates to Barry we now hold. We invite all to visit our photo pages. You can contribute to this online archive or, donate original item/s by contacting,

Where we are. Barry is Docks Town situated on the coast of the Bristol Channel around 10 miles from the Welsh capital city of Cardiff.

Please Read On.  While our Local Communigate site, a link to which you will find below concentrates more on the politics of doing local history in Barry, along with a few short articles, more news and information about us etc. Here, we intend to concentrate on sharing the wealth of our local history collection with the public both at home and abroad.

In particular. This site offers the facility of photo album's. These we intend to make extensive use of over time. Please note. This site is constantly expanding its content. So please check back from time to time to see any progress made. Please note that copyright for material on our site remains with its owner, and or Axis Historical Society, where such rights exist. Some items  in use from our own collection have no method by which the original owner could be traced. In that light. Should you see an image on this site that you feel may be yours. Please feel free to inform us and we would be more than pleased to have you rightly credited.

Should you experience any problems enlarging any photo in our albums, right click your mouse, then click on open link. It worked for us. So it should work for you.

Please enjoy.
