SCENES of Upwell and Outwell from a bygone era have been reproduced as postcards to help raise money for groups within two villages.

The paintings date back as far as 1835 and include scenes of Beaupre Hall, Outwell, the old tram yard at Upwell, St Clement's Church, Outwell, and the Five Bells pub and St Peter's Church, Upwell.

The 12 paintings, six from each village, have been reproduced by William Smith, of Carrillson Publications, Outwell, who painted pictures of the area from lithographs and old photographs.

Mr Smith said: "I have painted for a long time and lots of people have asked me for copies, so I made the postcards."

The postcards are available from Etcetera Kitchenware, in York Row, Wisbech, and from Upwell and Outwell post offices.

Some money has already been given to Outwell village hall, for tables and chairs.
