Test pit dig - 2017/2018

We have been working with a local history society who have been digging test pits in and around their village to establish the earliest known origins and pattern of occupation. The project has also involved looking at an earlier settlement and earlier manor and church to the south of the current village. The garden test pits have unearthed pottery from as early as the Roman period, through to post medieval and have involved the local school as well as young adults from Fairfield Farm College. The results and interpretation will soon be available on their new society website.
