Chilworth historic landscape survey (1 - 30 April)

Events: 
An historic landscape survey is currently being undertaken (March 2008) around the gunpowder mills at Chilworth.

A team of volunteers will be led by Philip Masters, a professional landscape archaeologist and will look at the water management systems associated with the gunpowder mills as well as at other historic features in the vicinity.

South East Research Framework

 

The archaeology, buildings and historic landscape of South East England (East Sussex, Kent, Surrey and West Sussex) comprise an outstanding inheritance that helps to give the region its distinctive character and sense of identity.

This historic environment is also a rich resource for education, research and leisure, but what do we actually know about the region's past, and what are the questions we want and need to answer?

The South East Research Framework for the historic environment is an opportunity for all those who care about the region's heritage to take stock and plan how limited resources should be used.
