welcomes you


On Saturday 19th August the Bawdrip History Group organised a Heritage Day to publicise the proposed Heritage Project the aim of which is to learn more about our heritage and share this with residents, visitors, children and future generations with the help of a village trail and three interpretation boards.

Large numbers of visitors came to the various venues around the village offering a range of displays and activities catering for all interests. The day began with the Church bells ringing out across the village. 

In the Hall Simon and Gina Scarbro explained the project and sought views on the suggested options. Ned Philcox interviewed local residents for their memories,  Dave Bown  displayed his latest finding regarding the Bridgwater Railway and Jackie Curtis showed some of her excellent work including her latest linocut. Sue Philcox  brought some of her heritage breads for everyone to taste which acted as an appetiser for the delicious ploughmen's lunches  drinks and cakes served by Lynn Brum and her team.

On the village green there were fun activities with skittles and the village stocks. Bygone pastimes and games like giant noughts and crosses and snakes and ladders for the children were available.

 An entertaining live Folk music session was provided by Lorna and Andy was enjoyed by all.

Sue Clarke displayed exhibits focussing on the changing landscape and its flora and fauna.

In the Church there was a display of  records and treasures, a selection of old Bawdrip pictures and a fascinating virtual view from the Church Tower.

This was a very enjoyable day for all who attended and will no doubt help the History Group in achieving the aims of the project . They wish to thank everyone for their efforts and support which also raised over £300 on the day.
