The New Hampshire Geological Survey, a bureau of the NH Department of Environmental Services, is mapping the surficial geologic

materials of southeastern Winchester between May 2019 and September 2019. This work is part of a federal grant that the state obtained

to map the surficial geology in New Hampshire. The area to be mapped is the portion of the town that lies in the Mt. Grace USGS 7.5-minute

topographic quadrangle. The geologic map produced will be available to guide ground-water exploration and resource evaluation and also

contribute to understanding the natural history of the state. For more information about the program,

Dr. Michael Prentice will conduct the reconnaissance survey by driving throughout the area in a RAM 1500 emblazoned with the name “Geoscy”.

He will not access private property without explicit prior permission from the landowner. He would be most grateful for any information about surficial (glacial)

deposits and is especially interested in sand and gravel mining exposures and sediments encountered during drilling.

Contact him through the NH Geological Survey’s website (above).

Results from this survey will be shared with residents of the town. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Ashuelot Rail Trail Program
The Town of Winchester is participating in the Ashuelot Rail Trail Project Advisory Committee,
a group of stakeholders from multiple towns, formed to aid and guide the Southwest Regional Planning Commission (SWRPC)
in the development of a vision and plan to improve, promote and invest in the Ashuelot Rail Trail.
The Ashuelot Rail Trail runs 21.5 miles from Keene, through Swanzey and Winchester to Hinsdale.
The multiuse trail is a unique benefit to each town by connecting people with various forms recreation
and being used as an alternative mode of transportation. Revitalizing the rail trial could bring not only
fun and healthy benefits to residents, but an economic boost with tourists for hiking, biking, snowmobiling, x country skiing,
 and viewing wildlife and the scenic Ashuelot River. The town representatives attending the 5 meeting
ver the next 12 months are Herb Stephens and Margaret Sharra. They would be glad to share any
comments and input you relay to them. Please refer to the following link for more information
