Discover Sandridge

25 April, 2014 - 29 May, 2014

Free

Sandridge900+ celebrates 900 years since the consecration of the village church of St Leonard’s in Sandridge. This exhibition looks at the history of Sandridge from the Stone Age to the present day.

SANDRIDGE900+ covers Bernard’s Heath (aka Sandridge New Town), Marshalswick, Jersey Farm, Sandridge Village and the surrounding countryside.

Until 1904 all these fell within the ancient parish of St Leonard’s, dedicated around 1114 as a small isolated church to serve the monks and labourers working one of the farms belonging to the great Benedictine Abbey of St Albans. The church is still there, and so is the farm, but from this nucleus has grown over the centuries a busy thriving district which is an integral part of the city, whilst retaining and developing characteristics of its own.
