We are preparing resources for residents and people visiting the area. Detailed below are the resources published so far and we hope to expand the resources available during the lifetime of the project.
Ten beautiful tile mosaics have been created by the local community, guided by artists from Teach Me in New Romney and artistic lead Yolanda Houston. The mosaics celebrate the heritage and wildlife of Romney Marsh, as well as the medieval churches which have stood as Sentinels in this unique landscape for hundreds of years. Themes were suggested by the community and over 300 people took part in making the mosaic artworks during 2021. The mosaics are being exhibited in the historic churches at Brenzett, Brookland, Burmarsh, Dymchurch, East Guldeford, Ivychurch, Lydd, Newchurch, New Romney [and St Mary in the marsh from October 2021 due to essential maintenance work in the church].
Romney Marsh Training Quiz
Learn about the Romney Marsh landscape or test your existing knowledge! As part of our Landscape Ambassador project, we have created a short training quiz to help share some interesting facts and highlights about the area. The answers are multiple-choice and there are lots of interesting things to learn. At the end you can print a certificate to show you have completed this training!
