Heritage Volunteers Berkeley Castle 2011

Posted on August 25, 2011 by ianto

Monica Evans, the society’s heritage volunteers organiser, led several members in an exciting project at Berkeley Castle during the 2010-11 winter. While the castle was closed to the public they photographed many objects in the castle’s collection. The purpose was to create a digital ‘Icollection’ partly for security reasons. The volunteers coped with very cold conditions (remember that winter!). NADFAS House were also interested as this was an original form of heritage volunteering. The other members were Margaret Macnair, Anne Mogie, Julian Berrisford, Joan Bloore, Ray Davies, George Duff and Chris Manning. The photograph shows several members with the castle general manager Vicki Parr. A similar project is planned for Tewkesbury Abbey
