The Greensand Country has a rich medieval monastic heritage with several sites clustered together in the area surrounding the Greensand Ridge.  Why are there so many monastic sites and what impact do they have on the landscape today?


Together, with a range of experts including Historians; Archaeologists; Geologists and Historic Designed Landscape Specialists, we will explore the unique heritage of monastic sites in the Greensand Country.  This will be an informal conference with the opportunity to take part in a guided walk around the gardens.

The Greensand Country Landscape Partnership is proud to be working with The Sculpture Gallery at Woburn Abbey to deliver the second of three annual ‘Delving into Heritage Days.’  Each year, we explore a difference landscape theme that makes up the distinctive ‘landscape character’ of the Greensand Country area.  Delegates from last year’s conference said:

“I never knew there was so much to learn about Greensand Country; its origin, its history and its future”

“Delving into Heritage was a fascinating insight into the geology, ecology and history of Greensand Country.  Thank you for organising such a fab day!”
