Carvings on show for the first time since the 1930s

In the Spirit of Godshill, the memoir by potter Christopher Charman, captures the imagination of local artists and historians.

A gathering of painters and potters, New Forest historians and residents joined us at the New Forest launch of Christopher Pan Charman's memoir In the Spirit of Godshill at the New Forest Heritage Centre in Lyndhurst. 

The event was hosted by Chairman of the Trustees of the NFHC Mary Montagu-Scott and Giles Gould, the recently appointed Manager of the Centre.

The evocative woodcarvings of Christopher Charman's father Tom also attracted huge interest and copies of the book were quickly snapped up.

The book will be back on sale to visitors priced £20.00 when the New Forest Heritage Centre shop re-opens.
