House Histories

In 2012, author and broadcaster Nick Barratt briefed the Group in techniques for researching House Histories. A number of members subsequently researched a selection of homes and other buildings.

In June 2012, the History Group displayed in The Court Hall an exhibition of illustrated panels, each featuring a village building which had been researched as part of its House Histories project. The content of these panels is reproduced in this section.

In subsequent years, the exhibition was mounted at the Hampshire Record Office in Winchester, and guided walks were arranged around the historic buildings. A printed booklet was also produced, which can be bought at East Meon Stores.
