August 2021 Tapestry Exhibition: Rochford District Heritage Tapestry covering 1,000 years of local history

The Rochford District Heritage Tapestry was created over a period of 20 months through a community project involving 90 adults and 80 children. It covers 1,000 years of local history and is displayed in ten tapestry panels, each measuring over 2ft high by 3ft wide. Here is a link to the tapestry section of our website:
