History Research Group – Can You Help?

The History Research group has been busy over the last few months pulling together the research carried out by members to go onto the new history website which we plan to launch early in 2022. It will be the place for both visitors and locals to find out about the history of the Park, telling the stories of its buildings, gardens, landscape, the people connected to it and much more. With Greenwich Park enjoying such a long and rich history, there’s a lot of work still to be done. We would love to hear from you if you’re interested in helping with our work, whether you want to do original, in-depth research on a subject or summarise existing information for the website.

If you’d like to join us or want to find out more, please contact info@friendsofgreenwichpark.org.uk. We are currently meeting online once a month, so we hope that you can join us for our next meeting.

The Greenwich Park Revealed (GPR) project is bringing new opportunities for the group to work with Andrew Mayfield, the Community Archaeologist, getting involved in discovering new information about different sites in the Park. Work on the Anglo-Saxon Burial Site and possible new finds might tell us more about these early settlers. As the GPR project progresses, new aerial and ground surveys will help to identify further potential sites for excavation and interpretation. So let us have any information – memories and research. For example did you know the barrows were once known as Plum Pudding Hill?
