FORWARD Saint BARNABAS
Editing of the six-minute film about Lady Brilliana Harley, and Captain Priamus Davies, and the part they played in the defence of Brampton Bryan in the siege of 1643, which was made at the end of August, is almost complete. We had hoped to upload it to the website before now, but it had to be returned to the director for a few very minor corrections. Deborah Jarman has written a short introduction and conclusion to the film, which will help to set it in context. We hope very much that it will be available to view before Christmas – and will let you know when it is! ‘A Woman of Masculine Bravery’ Dr Sarah Read, the producer of the film, has written an excellent article about Lady Brilliana Harley, which appeared in the autumn edition of The Historian magazine. The magazine has given permission for the article to be made public on the website of the University of Loughborough, where Sara works.

It’s well worth a read! The Interactive Map Dulcie Fulton and Deborah Jarman are working hard on creating content for the interactive map which will appear on the website in the New Year. Evaluation Meeting – 17th of November Michael Sumner, Michael Dugdale, Deborah Jarman and Cynthia Preston Jones and Susan Harley met with Sarah Rickett, the Project’s evaluation consultant, on the 17th of November to discuss the different ways in which the success of the Forward St Barnabas project will be assessed. Shropshire Archives Deborah Jarman visited the Shropshire Archives in Shrewsbury on the 11th of November, and found a number of interesting documents about Brampton Bryan, including this 1877 advertisement for the Bron Fair, on the back of a horse dealer’s leaflet. Thank you! Thank you to all the people who have shared memories, photographs, and information with the Project in the last few weeks, especially: ? Edward & Victoria Harley ? Mr and Mrs Williams of Oxford House ? Viv Simkins and the Leintwardine History Society archive ? Mr John Williams of Leintwardine Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You All Deborah Jarman
