The Lincolnshire Coastal Grazing Marshes Project focuses on a unique landscape: the flat belt of land traditionally associated with pastoral farming, which fringes the coast from the Humber to The Wash. It is steeped in history and has a rich cultural and wildlife heritage but is fast disappearing.
As part of the project, Heritage Lincolnshire is carrying out a Heritage and Landscape study. As well as an assessment of the historic places and archaeological sites within target areas, the study includes the cultural heritage of the Grazing Marshes – this is where you can help.
We would like to hear about your memories of how life used to be in the Marshes, how the countryside looked and how it has changed. People who live, work or visit the area can contribute and help to promote and conserve this special historic landscape.
Share your stories and views on the past or present heritage and landscape of the Marshes by completing the questionnaire online at: www.surveygizmo.com/s/296869/lincolnshire-grazing-marshes-survey
or by contacting Denise Drury at Heritage Lincolnshire, The Old School, Cameron Street, Heckington, Sleaford, NG34 9RW. Tel: 01529 461499 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for questionnaires is Monday 21 June 2010
