Welcome to The Moment Centenary Project

“The Moment” is our shorthand for capturing the enormity of the first world war. No community was untouched. Whether you attach it to the declaration of war in August 1914, the horrors of the conflict or the resultant social upheaval it was the Moment of the world changing forever.

1914-18 / 2014-18

Our project aims to record, in the context of 100 years ago, what happened in the working landscape of the ‘Golden Triangle’ villages centred around Dymock, Gloucestershire.  Above all this is a community project designed to encourage participation, recover lost memories and artefacts and celebrate the importance of our beautiful landscape.  The Friends of the Dymock Poets and the University of Gloucestershire are supporting our efforts.  As we gather information, stories and images these will appear as cross referenced articles and published on our themes page.  Watch out for original poetry from Gloucestershire schools, and oral histories from the community events and workshops we will be organising over the next four years.
