The first dig of the year will commence on the 3rd of June and run throughout the following week.

It will be a closed dig which means you will need to be a member of the Friends (single £14, family £24) to participate or visit the site.

The site is near a notable early Post Medieval building and we hope to be pushing the sites history back even further.

If you wish to be involved please email us for further details –

Please note that even if the weather is misbehaving we will still be working at the dig site. Weatherproof facilities mean we can start cleaning the finds and assessing the site based on what we have found.

Make sure you have the appropriate footwear, clothing, food, drink etc.
