Lost Landscape of Heroes
To Whom it May Concern
About the Project
The “Lost Landscape of Heroes” project organised by the Landscape Heritage Research
Foundation, is a part of the Isle of Axholme and Hadﬁeld Chase Landscape. The project is
about working with local people to re-discover a lost heritage of military landscapes in the
area. The Isle played a part in all major conflicts in the 20th Century with the significant
features from WW2 being particularly obvious. With many of these remains being forgotten
and some now very much at risk, much of the military history and heritage is in danger of
being lost completely. Alongside the fieldwork and archival research being undertaken by
the project volunteers, it sets out to capture memories of the people and their experiences
before they too are lost and to record the heritage which remains.
Oral Histories & Reminiscences — ‘I Remember When …’
The memories of local people are a valuable resource. We need to record these memories
before they are lost to current research and future generations. We have a team of trained
volunteers to help record these memories, compiling them into a unique archive of local
history from the viewpoint of those who have lived there – in their own words.
We are looking for people who wish to share their memories along with any photographs,
documents or other memorabilia, with the project. For anyone who wishes to write their
memories, please fill in one of our ‘I Remember When …’ forms. We will use this information as a basis for our Project Discovery Day in March 2019. The information will also be lodged with archives locally.
