The local history group for Emery Down and the hamlets around Lyndhurst
The How We Used To Live local history project encompasses talks, exhibitions and hands-on exploration of the past. Focusing upon people and houses in Allum Green, Bank, Blackwater, Emery Down, Gritnam and Swan Green it also encourages local inhabitants with long memories to reminisce about their lives through an active oral history programme. Talks are held annually from October-April (not January) at 7.30pm in Emery Down and Bank Village Hall, SO43 7EB.
