First Update

This is the first update to the Barrow on Trent Heritage Lottery Project Blog

Jill Scarfe has also added a formal first Progress Report

Regular Formal Progress Reports and photographs of the team  in action will appear on the “ Progress of the Project “  Page

The blog is a work in progress but so far I have written the Overview and Early History pages to place the Parish in a Geographic and Historical context

Following the suggestion by Duncan Hewitt I have added several interactive maps on the Early History Page and the Village page as well as a link to Duncan’s map on the Arleston Page.  Try them out and let me know what you think

I have also added some help on the Help and Resources Page – I would welcome feedback on these items as well

Again following advice from Duncan I have set up some Cloud storage using Mediafire – advice on how to access the information is on the Help and Resources Pages


I have just discovered that MediaFire claim that you can only view files directly in MediaFire if you are using either Firefox or Chrome as your browser

Mediafire claim that preview is not supported in Internet Explorer – but it works for me using Explorer 10 under Windows 7 

Finally I have added a list of significant buildings in the village just as a basis for future work – the same applies to the Church page – as information and documents come forward the current information will be overwritten

From the Blog angle I still have some work to do on how we will display the Oral History from the School
