If we don't understand our area then there is less likelyhood we will understand the need to conserve it. The attempt to impose substantial new development on Moor Pool by Grainger plc was a wake up call. Many residents discovered new aspects to the Estate and its history as we set about saving it. The lesson is that we need to continue to do that and ensure new residents have the opportunity to appeciate Moor Pools history and the benefits that it brings.
As part of the Heritage Lottery Fund grant the Moor Pool Heritage Trust have employed a part time education officer Rachel West who has put in train a variety of educational projects particularly involving schools. More information on these can be found out by contacting Rachel at the Moor Pool Hall 0121 426 2908.
We should not expect one person to carry the burden of learning and sharing about Moor Pools history. We can all help in some way and this website is an example. We can also learn from elsewhere.
