How Old is Cottesmore? - The Living Village

Following on form this story here, we are pleased to announce that the results are in from our study "How old is Cottesmore and how has it Developed" funded by a grant of £13,600 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The project concentrated on eight buildings throughout the village including the church and the Sun Inn. By the use of tree-ring dating procedure (dendrochronology) we were able to obtain some exact dates from when some of the building were built and how they developed to what we see today.

Below you will find a video, a book... plus links to the dendrochronology report and completion report.
