Support museum idea

Langdyke trustee David Cowcill is calling on members and supporters to submit items for the Museum of Objects.

As a permanent record of the 20th Anniversary, the Trust will publish a book in September (to coincide with the Annual Meeting) showcasing the work of 2019 Artist in Residence Kathryn Parsons, who has so far engaged over 300 people with her art project and innovative “plant printing” techniques. 

Some results were on display in situ on the Etton-Maxey reserve a couple of weeks ago. 

Also in the book will be a Langdyke Museum of Objects – an attempt to capture an image and descriptive record of the items that trigger people’s thoughts of (and responses to) the natural world of John Clare Country.

David said: “We have been collecting ideas from the general public at all the recent anniversary events, and now want to throw open the process to all the members too. 

“So – please take a look at the attached invitation to submit an object (and within reason it can be ANY object that brings to mind our wonderful natural environment) – and to share your thoughts with others and for the future. “

The deadline for the book is getting close, so if possible please send the form before July 24 to editor@langdyke.org.uk
