The Roger Brown Model
Roger Brown was an incredibly well-loved and popular town planner for Hampshire, whose lifelong work had a great impact in shaping Winchester’s townscape and its close knit community.
Following his retirement from Hampshire County Council in the 1980s, he spent nine years making an immense and impressive scale model of central Winchester based on the first Ordnance Survey map of the city in 1873.
Now, in need of desperate need of restoration and a long term home, Hampshire Cultural Trust have embarked on a project to save the model and bring it back to life in the Winchester City Museum.
Having supported a broad range of inspiring and transformational projects over the Foundation’s 30 year history, the Trustees decided to embark upon a strategic review to ensure our grants were having the greatest impact. In 2020 we completed an intensive eight month programme led by Ten Years’ Time and we’re thrilled to be focussing all our efforts now on building Youth Power and Leadership with some fantastic partners.
