VILLAGERS and visitors to Hough-on-the-Hill learned about the architecture and history of All Saints Church and other buildings during a special event on Saturday.

The ‘walk and talk’, entitled Hough-on-the-Hill - an Architectural Exploration, was the first in a series of talks as part of the Hough Community Project, which aims to increase the use of the church.

Around 30 people attended the informative talk, given by Mary Anderson of Boston architectural firm Anderson and Glenn.

As an expert in the field of ecclesiastical architecture, Mary was able to talk extensively the history of the Anglo-Saxon church.

Villager Mal Twelvetrees is co-ordinating the series of events, and was impressed by Mary’s knowledge.

She said: “I saw things I had never noticed before.

“We thought it was very approporiate to start with the focus on the church itself. Everyone who came along was very, very interested.”

The next workshop is in May, entitled ‘Making a Musical Instrument’ and featuring Gary Southwell, who makes guitars and has done so for many well-known musicians.
