* It was a three year community project, centered on the market town of Watton and the surrounding parishes, which aims to explore, record and celebrate Wayland’s unique cultural and landscape heritage.
* The project worked with local schools and history groups, providing support, activities and training. It also helped set up new interest groups where they did not already exist, such as this new flickr group.
* Topics explored landscape, history, archaeology, myths, buildings, oral & family history, trades, crafts, fairs, sport, traditions, farming, ‘Battle Area’, airfields, transport, religion, food and fashion.
* ‘Capturing our Wayland Heritage’ helped create an archive that will be a legacy for generations to come, way beyond the three years of the project.
* The results of the project have been shared with the community and visitors to the area, through 13 books and DVD, and a schools pack for all the schools in the Wayland area.
* Revealing Wayland’s hidden heritage will help the local economy by encouraging more tourism in the area.
