Sir Alfred Munnings captured in great detail the changing rural countryside and the people who lived and worked the land between the years 1898-1957 in East Anglia. This has provided us with a unique and valuable resource, helping us to understand our heritage more deeply and give us a point of reference to view the continuing changes in the AONB Dedham Vale and Stour Valley landscape since 1950’s.
The Dedham Vale and Stour Valley AONB have awarded the Munnings collection funding to enable a range of projects culminating in new exhibition pieces and a programme of events in 2013. We will be working with local people, Dedham CEVP Primary School, Manningtree High School, Chantry High School, Blackbrook residents’ home and commissioned photographer Justin Partyka to create these pieces and the programme. The projects will provide lots opportunities for participants to study Munnings, to be creative and to celebrate and connect with the local landscapes. We will regularly be putting updates about the Changing Landscapes project on our website.
