From the first meeting we were able to get quite a few contacts, and they were quick to get in touch as they were interested in telling us about their cause. They were thrilled that we were going to be documenting their currently undisturbed landscape and gave out more contacts who we could use. They also proposed to set up another meeting, as well as offer to show us around the sites. To get a better vantage point, they suggested taking us up the church tower where we could get a better feel as to where the building would take place.
We will be getting in contact with the other people in this email and hopefully setting up meetings soon.
