Buckland St Mary
a village in the Blackdown Hills of Somerset



Do you have any 1914 era pictures of or stories from Buckland St Mary?

Our project was to find out more about the men commemorated on the War Memorial in Buckland St Mary. We launched it with an Exhibition in the Church.

‘VANISHED LIVES - Remembering Buckland St Mary's War Dead'

This was held during the August Bank Holiday weekend, August 23rd - 25th 2014

It gave a sense of the world of 1914 from which these young men came, as well as pictures and stories of their lives, one section had a display of photos, including pictures of the village and the area from that time.

Since the very succesful exhibition we have continued the theme by updating the web site with stories of the men's lives.
