Living History group

The Hyde900 Living History Project is exploring the living memory of the Hyde area of Winchester, following its development from a predominantly industrial to a residential area and community. Our aim is to raise local people’s awareness of the story that surrounds them, and to create a record of our area for future generations.

Soldiers of Hyde Project

Helmetcleang5Under the auspices of Hyde 900 there is a project afoot to research and document the lives of the soldiers of the First World War who are commemorated in St Bartholemew’s Church.

Apart from Regiment, Rank and Age, the intent is to explore the stories behind the names, to bring to our very comfortable and peaceful lives in Hyde today, a concept of the community during this time.

If you are interested in joining a working party; enjoy research –   ably assisted by Alys Blakeway and  would like to take part in what  promises to be a fascinating task, with an excellent group of  ‘ Hydeites’  please contact Caroline Scott on 01962853997 or e mail [email protected] or [email protected]

Equally if anyone has any information on any of the soldiers who so sadly did not return, all leads are welcome at this initial stage.
