Event description

Description

Many villages in the UK have long and sometimes surprising histories, not always evident to the casual visitor. Using Littleton on Severn as an example, Lyn Carnaby will illustrate how landscape, architecture, village design, field names and trees can all used to help uncover social history, in a pattern that can be used on other sites. In the case of Littleton this will include smuggling! Lyn will also explore how Littleton’s St Mary de Malmesbury church is linked to Malmesbury Abbey, Wiltshire and more broadly how church dedications give us clues to ancient pilgrimage routes.

Lyn Carnaby is a local historian and retired teacher. She has developed education resources based on local history including the crash landing of the Britannia. She is a member of the Society of Authors, has been a member of Littleton PCC for 42 years and was a church warden for 22 years.
