About Us

Holcombe Moor Heritage Group is a group of volunteers with an interest in discovering the history of the Holcombe Moor area. Much of this area is owned by the Ministry of Defence, who are keen to learn more about their land and preserve its historical sites. We are also looking into the history of the area known in the past as the “Forest of Holcombe” which includes parts of Hawkshaw, Holcombe Brook and Greenmount.

As a group we investigate the history of the area using a variety of methods, including archaeological excavations and searching through documentation, such as census returns, wills and maps. We also organise a series of speakers to talk on a variety of subjects with an historical theme during the winter months. There are also other events organised during the year.

We would love to hear from you if you would like to get involved.
