The small conservation village of Hampstead
Norreys nestles in an area of outstanding beauty in the lovely Berkshire Downs. It has an ancient and
interesting history, dating from pre-Norman times, and much of the centre of the village reflects its past through
its unique collection of old buildings, barns, pathways and woodland. Preserving these for future
generations to enjoy is an ongoing process and we are very grateful to the wonderful team of volunteers who give of
their time to help.
History and Heritage is an intrinsic part
of village life and many of the projects undertaken have been carried out with the aim of preserving many of the
historical artefacts which have contributed to village life over the centuries.
New project started in June 2020 -
The projects completed involve a wide
variety of different elements of heritage conservation; including research, project management, census compiling,
oral history and "walks and talks". A few of the examples of the work completed by the heritage group are shown
below and you can find details by clicking on the pictures. For the full list of projects and other information
please refer to the left-hand menu on these pages.
There are lots of opportunities to become involved, in
many different aspects of our local history and volunteers are very welcome. If you are interested in helping
