Crimlisk Fisher Archive

In 1991 Filey Town Council started an archive of local heritage material. The basis for this now extensive collection were donations of material from Fred Fisher and also John Crimlisk.

Fred had held the photographic collection of Filey photographer Walter Fisher, this collection is shared now between Filey Museum and The Crimlisk-Fisher Archive, both being located on Queen Street, Filey.

John Crimlisk and his wife Maisy were local history researchers who gathered a vast amount of heritage material this was also donated to the Town Council to remain in Filey and be accessible for people.

The archives are supported by the Town Council and are based within the Council buildings at 52a Queen Street.
