During its Heritage Lottery refurbishment the Museum is visiting a different village every month.
Amongst the materials on display will be photographs of the local area, taken by Buriton’s own Don Eades.
Don took photos for the Petersfield Post from 1962-1987 and has donated over 100,000 negatives to the museum. Some of his fascinating photos of Buriton, its people and events, will be on display.
The ‘Roadshow’ is an opportunity to bring things to add to the Museum’s collection or to share stories over a cup of tea or coffee.
Join in fun, hands-on, activities and handle some of the objects in the Museum’s collection – in Buriton Village Hall from 11am to 4pm
An illustrated talk by professional historian Dr Annabelle Hughes.
In study visits to Buriton during 2018 and 2019, Annabelle Hughes has examined a number of individual houses and formed a picture of how the village has developed over time.
Annabelle has about 30 years’ experience of investigating, analysing and making written records of buildings. She believes that through examining and recording the buildings of a village, a better understanding can be gained of the way that a locality has developed over the centuries – and helps towards shaping and protecting its future.
One of her most recent publications is the beautifully illustrated ‘Traditional Homes of the South Downs National Park’.
The talk will provide insights into how anyone can begin to research the history of their own home as well as revealing what she has discovered about the history of Buriton.
Starting at 7.30pm in Buriton Village Hall, entry is free (with a retiring collection) and everyone is welcome.
