SGC Forgotten Landscapes Project

SGC Forgotten Landscapes – July 2017 Edition

Long evenings, mild mornings, gentle breezes – the summer is a wonderful time to be outside.  From your back yard to the back of beyond, there’s loads to explore in A Forgotten Landscape.

Come join us at our first annual Severn Festival on Sat 8th July!  Walks, music, food, crafts – heaps of stalls – and much more await you at Severn Beach Village Hall and Grounds from 11-4.

If crowds aren’t your thing, we’ve got loads of small group activities – just see our events section below!

The Toot, the Scheduled Ancient Monument, is slowly giving up its secrets.  Our dig is now over but analysis is only just beginning.  We bring you an update here.

Also in the news are the latest updates on proposed changes to the flood defences in Avonmouth and Severnside, a new special designation area in Aust, and a chance to take part in a very special local tradition!

Finally there’s a few new delights to be found on our website – check out our new links!

In this edition:

* Our amazing volunteer opportunities
* Our fabulous free activities
* Festival!
* Latest on new flood defence plans
* View from the trenches – our dig concludes but new work begins
* St Arilda’s traditional pilgrimage
* New fascinating fun on-line
* RIGS – what is it and why is there a new one in Aust?

Happy reading!

June 2017 Edition

Summer’s here and it’s time to celebrate, get outside, go wild!

We’re gearing up for another busy summer with 30 Days Wild already underway, the Festival of Nature imminent, and our own Festival next month!

We’re also working on our interpretation points for the landscape – what stories do you think we should tell?  And our artist-in-residence is looking for thoughts for the public sculptures she’s creating.

There’s lots of updates from our volunteers – find out about our public archaeology programme, hear what our oral history team has been collecting, and see what’s growing in the orchard!

All this and more in your June newsletter.
