ACKLAM Archives is appealing to anyone who may have a painting of the village by AW Carter to help with their research.

The aim is to have a comprehensive record of Carter’s unique legacy for future generations to enjoy in the village that inspired their creation. The paintings were part of a display in an “Exhibition Of Art” in Acklam, in June 1943. Carter, originally from Little Horton, Bradford, was for 30 years Art Master at St Dunstan’s in London. Anyone who can help should contact Acklam Archives, c/o Keith Holtby on 01653 658402, or email
