John Walker will lead a guided visit to the “lost village” of Argham. John is the official guide for this site and he will provide backup notes and diagrams.
Meet at Rudston churchyard at 18:45. Cars will be needed.
Some background information can be found here.
Only the final touches to be made now. Next step will be to put in the lights and the control panel, but those will be decided later in the year.
A drop in style progress meeting was held in Rudston Village Hall. This allowed people to find out the progress being made and to see some of the material that is being developed.
The Rudston Local History Group was launched and has already got nearly 20 members. The first meeting of the group will be in September 2013 and will be a great help to build the knowledge of Rudston;s history.
Work has started on the church roof to prevent the damp in the walls in the area to be used by the Heritage Centre. This work is being funded solely by the Church, and when it is complete, and the walls have dried out, work can commence on the Heritage Centre itself.
The model has just come off the CNC router, now it’s off to the model making department for the old fashioned hand work!
Here are a couple of photos of the model base board during the first roughing out stage on the CNC router.
For those who don’t recognise the contours, it’s the Low Caythorpe end, of course.
Now two photos showing the contours being smoothed.
A progress meeting will be held on 23 May at 19:00 in the Village Hall.
This is a drop in meeting to allow people:
- to find out the progress that has been made to date;
- to comment on which areas of the village have the most significance for the 3D model;
- to see how the website and data repository are being developed;
- to volunteer to help with research, guides, etc.
Construction of the base for the 3D model of the village will be starting shortly. A 2D full size photo of the area the model will cover will be on view for comment at the meeting on 23 May.
The funding for the Heritage Centre from the Heritage Lottery Fund has been approved. Repairs to the church wall will start soon.
