  • Good afternoon, I saw in the Romsey Advertiser dated 5/6/20 the wonderful article about County Local History, in particular the picture of the model as East Meon might have been in 1086. Whilst I have never lived in that part of Hampshire, I used to travel in my youth – not 900 years ago, only 50! up and down the Meon Valley and still love its ability to have remained relatively unspoilt. I wonder if there are pictures or images for sale of the model village. Best regards, Paul Keld

  • The copyright on the model belongs to La Musee de la Tapisserie, Bayeux. whom we credit whenever we use the photos. You meed to contact them for more information.
    We assume that the model was donated to them by Hampshire Museums Service after it had been on display in the Great Hall in 1986.

    We would like to make a bid to have it returned and displayed in the village but no-one can think of a suitable space.
