The Growth of our Parish

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 Annabelle 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.
