Abbey Primary School moved to its brand new site in April 2016. The entrance to school is a historical stone wall, confirmed by Mansfield District Council as part of the Sherwood Hall estate. Sherwood Hall existed between 1765 and 1965 as a home, garden and farm, before becoming a school.
We were successful in securing a grant from the National Lottery Heritage fund to support the development of a Heritage garden project and to help with our learning of the history surrounding Sherwood Hall.
We wanted to work alongside local people and organisations to discover the full history of the site; record memories; establish existing photographic evidence. Visits to local places such as Nottinghamshire Archives, Clumber Park and St Ann’s Allotments will deepen our learning of our local heritage, about Victorian gardening and gardeners, as well as how to attract wildlife to our site.
Using this learning we will co-create a garden space for children and adults alike, recreating some the key elements of planting and gardening. The stone wall will be a key feature in our learning and creation of our garden.
Our project will involve local volunteers from the local Heritage Group, Women’s Institute and individuals who wish to help us develop our project. Consultation within the school community has created a buzz outside the school and we have had contact from locals wanting to share their memories of Sherwood Hall.
