Heritage Open Day Exploring St Mary’s medieval church ruins unearthing the past and discovering local stories
Come along to learn about the heritage surrounding the St Mary’s medieval church site and ruins in Stoke Mandeville and in particular the exciting burial ground archaeology due to take place there.
Join us for our hourly talks on themes around the history and heritage of the nearby site containing the ruins of the medieval St Mary’s Church site. The talks will explore the archaeological and burial investigations that will be taking place on the site and you will hear from our on-site archaeologists discussing their research and findings so far which will give us a fascinating insight into the area’s medieval past. As well as exploring St Mary’s, we would also like to hear your stories and memories of the local area and will be recording these on the day as part of our local oral history project using our pop-up recording studio, set up at the community centre.
