Bedwyn Brails: the continuing hunt for a Tudor Mansion

Bank Holiday weekend - Saturday 27 to Monday 29 August.
Come along to assist with the continuing hunt for this Tudor Mansion.
Meet at Hill Barn Farm at 9.30. Finish 4pm.

Range of activities:
One area has already been geophysed and some targets identified which might be the foundation trenches. These will be excavated – on the hard “clag” with the aid of a digger; test pits would be dug in the cultivated areas; another area will also be geophysed and processed overnight to identify further possible targets for excavating on Sunday. Use will be made of the digger to continue following the line of the pipe found coming out of the Conduit House.
Monday will be used to finalise any “interesting” trenches and for fieldwalking – Bronze Age, Roman and Medieval pottery was found whilst geophysing.
