Race to save Settle's Horner photography collection

The Horner Collection is a group of over 1000 photographs which were taken by the Horner photography studio in Settle for three generations from 1864 to 1960. Their photographs capture the changing faces and places of Settle and the surrounding areas for nearly a hundred years.

The Museum of North Craven Life is crowdfunding to secure the collection, digitise and preserve it in Settle where the studio was located. The collection includes many original glass plate negatives which will need careful conservation and storage.

The museum has secured a £1500 grant from the V&A Purchase Grant Fund and needs to match this and pay for transport and associated costs. So far it has raised £3145 of £4000.
