The Missing Pieces Project

& Suffolk’s Unforgettable Garden Story

Drop-in workshop at The Hold, Ipswich

Saturday 12th Aug. 2023, 2-4pm

The Gardens Trust is hosting a drop-in workshop to tell people about Historic England’s Missing Pieces Project – a project that aims to collect people’s memories, stories and photos of historic sites (including but not limited to parks and gardens) in an effort to better record their histories and protect them for future generations. We’re hosting this at the Hold, Ipswich on Saturday 12th August from 2pm – 4pm and we’d love anyone interested in helping to protect our heritage to come along!

Karina Flynn, the SUGS Project Officer will also be talking about the work our volunteers in Suffolk have been doing over the last few months to research and add more of Suffolk’s historic parks, gardens and designed landscapes to the National Heritage List for England. If you’re also interested in finding out more about this exciting project do come along.

Come along to…
• Find out how to share material relating to your favourite Suffolk registered park or garden.
• Perhaps you have a photograph, postcard or story you would like to bring along?
• Learn how you can take photos of the views shown in the Nigel Temple postcard collection held in the Historic England Archive.

Be part of The Missing Pieces Project

All over England are places with stories to tell: from buildings to battlefields, some on your doorstep, others just a day trip away. Their stories are still being written – and they won’t be complete until you share your side. The Missing Pieces Project invites you to share your pictures and stories of the unique and memorable places on the National Heritage List for England. Every snapshot and story you add is an important piece of the picture. And the more pieces of the picture we have, the better we can work together to protect what makes these places special.
