People & Places: St Margaret's


Applicant: St Margaret's History Society

Project: People and Places: Understanding the Landscape of St Margaret's

Grant award: £10740

The landscape of the parishes of St Margaret's and Westcliffe has been greatly altered by human activity. This project will collect interviews and research about the past and present local landscape, especially from those involved with farming and the wartime history of the village, which has left many visible remains, but also from those who use the landscape today.

Volunteers will be trained in oral history collection, historical research and exhibition techniques and will collect  and transcribe memories and mount a public exhibition in the village and a virtual exhibition on their popular website.
