LATEST DIG

A dig is underway by the side of the River Brock looking at an old, derelict cottage.  Digging took place on the 9th and 10th October and continued the following weekend. More dates are planned for the future.  For more information contact the secretary.

The first important find, in terms of dating evidence, appeared on the 16th November when a 1817 George III silver sixpence was discovered. 

The site was originally closed down for the Winter - but that was before Coronavirus appeared.  Hopefully more investigations will take place in the Autumn.
