Between 1988 and 1990 Lynchmere Parish Council was instrumental in undertaking a Parish Appraisal and Parish map whose objectives were stated as:

· To record some of our past and more recent history before those who are able to remember it are gone.
· To find out what people who live in Lynchmere value, such as favourite trees, buildings, open spaces and commons; these were to be marked on a new large scale Parish Map, to establish what people liked and would like seen done.
· To look to the future and see how we could help promote our identity and keep our community together.
