The Jigsaw Project

The Parish Jigsaw

The Parish Jigsaw project was organised to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the East Hampshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 2002. The AONB preceded the South Downs National Park. Around 100 people from the 43 parishes within the AONB took photographs of their locality and attended workshops organised by East Hampshire District Council to make selections from these for their own piece of the Parish Jigsaw. They also helped to compile special Parish Pages, which have been bound into a series of albums to supplement the Parish Jigsaw. The Jigsaw highlights the local distinctiveness that makes each parish different from its neighbour, not only in landscape but in landmark features, buildings and the communities themselves.
