Churchyard Memorial Project

We are working with the New Forest National Park Authority as part of its landscape scheme, Our Past, Our Future (supported by Heritage Lottery funding), to record and assess for future monitoring and possible conservation the monuments in our churchyard at Emery Down.

In 2016 we held the first community days participating in the Rediscovering and Conserving Our Archaeological Heritage project and hope to complete the exercise in 2018 when the National Park will help us to restore some of our most damaged memorials.

At the start of the project the expertise of Archaeovision provided some truly amazing images of hard-to-read monuments in our churchyard and to see the results please click here.
