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: https://www.rochfordtown.com/heritage-tapestry and here is a link to a brief video from one of the previous exhibitions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l05skU0FV0I 
 
Following the enormously successful exhibition at Ashingdon Elim Church in July/August 2021, where over 700 people visited during the 2-week exhibition, the tapestry panels are now being displayed around the parishes of the Rochford District. 
 
The exhibition at Southend Forum of the Rochford District Heritage Tapestry will include all ten 2ft by 3ft framed panels, together with fabulous knitted items, accompanying drawings, historical information and children’s activities.
