The history of Hethersett is being brought alive thanks to a £1,350 grant from South Norfolk Council.
The grant will fund the launch of a new Hethersett Archive website providing the public with more information and access to historical documents.
Hethersett archive contains thousands of items including minutes, press cuttings, maps and many other items of significant historic importance.
Village archivist Gary Wyatt said: 'The Hethersett archive is a collection of historic documents, photos and artefacts covering the history of the village back through several centuries.'
The grant, which has been topped up by £150 from Hethersett Parish Council, will allow a complete re-build of the web site to make it more intuitive and user-friendly.
