Farming the Valley


Research workshop March 2016

In 2016 we embarked on an ambitious project, researching the history of Farming in the Valley; it started with workshops, at which our members chose to research a period of history, a topic which spanned the periods, or a farm or group of farms.villagers were invited to bring memorabilia for members to digitise and upload onto a new archive website.

In 2017 another HLF grant was secured with which we were able to employ a cartographer to create maps to illustrate this history (some of which are displayed below).

Each research project was the subject of  a written report and several members gave talks to the Group; a summary of the reports was compiled into a document entitled ‘Farming the Valley’, click here.
