This site is being developed by the GoWest.
Thank you for your interest, keep returning and see whats new.
GoWest is a constituted unincorporated association of volunteers. Its roots developed in the Committee for Agriculture and Rural Life in the Diocese of Worcester in 2001 when the countryside was recovering from Foot and Mouth disease. It set out to use the rich heritage of the church in the countryside in ways that would benefit the rural community and contribute to better understanding between town and country. In 2005 it was awarded £50K from the National Heritage Lottery Fund for its 'Stories from the Stones' pilot in the Teme Valley. Today Go West is on the way to becoming an independent Community Interest Company.
The GoWest Heritage Knights are a loose association of volunteers who come together when there is a specific task or activity requiring their skills. Sandy Marchant is the founder of Go West and its Project's Director.
Our headquarters are in the 900 year old Church of St. Edmund, King & Martyr, in south Worcestershire. Here you will find the Heritage Detective's School. The GoWest Heritage Knights are active in an area that spreads from historic Pershore into the borderlands of England and Wales, following River Teme to its source in the Welsh county of Powys. The area is rich in hidden history. Heritage detectives of all ages are out to discover the stories in the stones in the places they visit .
Our intention is to grow the 'Time Traveller's Guide' and our young people's 'Information Library'. We intend them to be a source of reference for heritage detectives and visitors to this beautiful area. (Where appropriate we will also create information links to other sites run by different organisations but remember we cannot vouch for the accuracy of their information!)
