Heritage Lincolnshire’s new e-resources project is launched

The surviving remains of Temple Bruer preceptory

We are currently enlisting volunteers to help us work on this exciting new project to produce digital interpretation and schools  resources that will help people to make the most of their local heritage. We are working closely with Lincolnshire County Council to make it easier for schools and people interested in the history and archaeology of their local area to make the best use of the county’s Historic Environment Record (HER) and museum collections. We will also be producing brand new computer-generated reconstructions of one of Lincolnshire’s most important ancient monuments, the Knights Templar preceptory at Temple Bruer.

    Thanks. We have got some volunteers from Navenby Archaeology group. They are going to do the research for the CGIs and then we will be working with Cad Tastic at Lincoln (together with the necessary specialist input to make sure the architectural detail is as accurate as possible) to produce them. We are also in the process of working up a project with a secondary school in Caistor to produce a tool kit to help schools make use of the county’s HER info in the curriculum.

    It is a fantastic building. It is about 7 miles NW of Sleaford at Temple farm, Temple Bruer, near Welbourn. This is the remains of the Knights Templar preceptory that we will be reconstructing with the CGIs. It is open every day. Admission is FREE. It is well worth a visit.

    The Knights Templar had a network of preceptories (also sometimes called a commanderies) throughout Europe. These were religious houses for the administration and management of their estates, and their purpose was to generate income to support their work in the Holy Land.
