This evocative DVD brings to life the story of the Meon Valley in rural east Hampshire – its ancient river, landscape, history and heritage. From Old Winchester Hill (with its iconic hill fort) and Butser Hill on the South Downs, to Titchfield Haven on the Solent, the river has attracted settlers through the Bronze, Iron, Roman, and Saxon eras to modern times, including D-Day and Churchill. The narrative of the Valley is brought to life in this professionally produced DVD with BBC quality voiceover, unique and evocative aerial footage, interviews, maps and images. You can join Wilfrith of Northumbria (St. Wilfrid) on his mission to convert the South and West Saxons and Jutes to Christianity . Additional to the main story line are cameos giving unique insights into the history and heritage of each of the ten villages and market towns of the Valley.
The DVD was commissioned and produced, with funding from our heritage partners (see below), by a Meon Valley charity – The Friends of the Saxon Church (AD1020) at Corhampton. Creative production and direction was by Focus Business Communications and Cambridge UAV, in consultation with communities of the Meon Valley, historians, archaeologists, champions of the river and its landscape and educationalists. The DVD is an ideal addition to the ‘coffee table’, a gift to share with family, friends and visitors and a valuable primary curriculum resource.
