Image Ordering Service


From April 2016 until the beginning of 2018, the Museum will be packing its off-site collections in preparation for a move to a new location. The move will help us to provide better online descriptions with higher quality images, and improved storage conditions.

Due to this major project, we regret that parts of our collections will be unavailable for research, loans and new photography for image orders into 2018. Please contact the Collections Manager at or 01865 277452 if you require further information.

To order images from the Museum, please fill in the online order form. Prices for use of images are detailed below.

Duplicates of all the images in the image library can be ordered from the Museum. Where the originals are colour transparencies they are duplicated by conventional photographic means. Black and white photographs from negatives are supplied as prints from stock or newly printed. Scans from slides and prints and original digital images are available by download, email and on CD. Colour prints (high photographic quality inkjet) are available in A4 size.

Note that the images displayed in the online collection are usually both highly compressed and auto adjusted for levels on an undifferentiated basis, so the resulting quality as viewed on screen may not reflect that of the original.

As well as providing stock images from the image library, the Museum also carries out bespoke photography to order.

All photographic orders are carried out on a pro forma basis. Payment for photographs is possible by credit card.
