The William Smith Plaque 2015
William Smith, Father of English Geology, was born in Churchill in 1769 and we are delighted to have installed a plaque at Smith's birthplace, thanks to the generous support of The Curry Fund.
The plaque was unveiled on 22 March 2015 by Professor Hugh Torrens.
We have also been working with the Oxford University Museum of Natural History to commemorate the bicentenary of William Smith's famous geological map of England and Wales.
This is a significant partnership and we are delighted to be celebrating the heritage of the villages of Churchill and Sarsden with this important focus on William Smith in 2015
