Heritage research

The search facility of the parish records (baptisms, marriages and burials) has been upgraded with more information on how the information has been built up from the original parish records.  The second Heritage display in the adjacent cabinet features the stone memorials inside the church and explains who they commemorate from Leigh on Mendip’s past.   Both these projects are part of the Heritage Lottery Fund (now The National Lottery Heritage Fund) ongoing project  – do come and have a look at the new heritage facilities. 

The latest research information will be presented at the Heritage Exhibition (in the Memorial Hall) as part of the Flower Festival which will be held over the August Bank Holiday weekend 24-26 August.
