Handmade in Moulton

I had a really positive start to the project last Saturday with a visit to the Handmade in Moulton craft fair.

The sky was blue, the ice cream van was shining in the sun and the deck chairs were out. I invited people to help me start gathering information about Moulton using a large map of the village. I had some wonderful conversations, with people sharing facts about the area and their personal stories of living, playing and working in the village that we added to the map throughout the day.

Thanks to Mary and Lauren for their support.

There were tales of proposals at the Eloe Stone, catching tiddlers behind the Church, memorial oak trees on the Moulton Harrox  sports field, VE day celebrations on Broad Lane and speed skating championships on Cowbit Wash.

It was late in the day when we packed up, but I managed a quick scoot around the village with my camera to find the locations of some of these places…
