Medieval (style!) tiles collected!

datePosted on 09:46, January 17th, 2019 by Site admin

Twenty  tile makers from September’s Hyde900 Heritage Open Day event have so far  collected their tiles – and have been universally delighted with the results. Emails have gone out to all who wished to have their tiles glazed and fired – at least those where the email addresses could be deciphered! The two other days for collection are Saturday 19  and Tuesday 22 January. If any tile maker wishes to collect their tile, and hasn’t already been in contact is invited to contact the event organiser at david@pekingparismorgan.com.”

In an exciting new development Hyde900 has worked with local archaeology organisation WARG to investigate what lies beneath a garden in King Alfred Place which covers a key corner of the demolished Hyde Abbey. Volunteers were invited to take part and there was an open day to view the finds on Sunday 24th April.

The event proved to be a roller coaster of emotions for those taking part. Midday of the last day and the mood was sombre with little having been found. Then new information led to an amazing result. Time Team couldn’t have choreographed it better.

King Alfred statue, WinchesterHyde900 presents a weekend of events around the theme of Alfred the Great, jointly organised by Hyde900 and St Bartholomew’s Church.

Ruler of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex from AD871 to 899, Alfred subdued the invading Vikings and brought about a new era of learning, culture and law that built the foundations of our modern society. Having been buried in the New Minster in central Winchester for over 200 years, his remains were transferred to the newly-built Hyde Abbey in AD1110. October 26th 2015 marks the 1116th anniversary of his death.

Hyde900 explores Alfred’s London

Walking King Alfred’s London

 

On Saturday 17th May an intrepid group of Hyde900 members and friends along with Morris the cockerpoo, set off in search of King Alfred’s London, in the capable hands of City of London Guide, Val Pretlove.

 

Assembling in the crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral we learnt that after the Romans packed up and left Londinium in 410 AD, it was abandoned and used as farmland. In 886 AD Alfred reclaimed and regenerated the city by taking the land from the Vikings and turning it into the habitable Lundenburgh; building houses, markets and churches, creating streets and wards and a structure of governance headed by aldermen.  The current Queenhithe and Billingsgate became important quays.

 

The first St Paul’s Cathedral had been founded in 604 AD and burnt down in 962 AD. The rebuilt church was moved to the current site, probably on to the site of a Roman temple on the western hill away from the derelict Roman forum and basilica. Whilst Alfred would have been familiar with the area where we were standing, he certainly would not have been familiar with the traffic and building noise that assailed us once we moved out of the cathedral precincts.
