Historypin | Sturmer History
We are collecting an ongoing archive of the history of Sturmer, Essex - a small village on the border of Suffolk and Essex near to Haverhill. We were awarded a grant from the All Our Stories Heritage Lottery Fund and have created a heritage trail. We celebrated it with an exhibition and reinactments of the Victorian classroom. We conducted oral history interviews, house histories and museum visits for school children. Our Victorian classroom and handling sessions are continuing. We have also undertaken some new self-funded projects e.g. WW1; medieval graffiti
