Ashburton’s Parishscapes Launch, Thursday 23rd April 2015

Ashburton launched their Parishscape project on Thursday evening at St Lawrence Chapel.  The project, organised by the Guild of St Lawrence will be spread over four years, and will look at all aspects of medieval Ashburton with the first year shedding light on medieval Ashburton’s bridges, roads, watercourses and buildings.  The event was well-attended by around sixty people and was followed by a lively and entertaining talk by David Crook on Beating the Bounds.  This will be the first Parishscapes project to get fully underway and it promises to involve a wide range of groups and individuals through guided walks, exhibitions, talks and school projects to complement the historical research.
