This next week is for school groups. You would probably be welcome to go and look (although don't blame me if they won't let you in) but I don't think they would want you making a YouTube video. I am taking "official" photos for the History Forum and have been asked to try and angle the photos so that individual children are not too recognisable, which is not easy.

There is another family day next Saturday, where parents can turn up to dig with their children (better than spades!) and then the week after next it is back to adult volunteers doing the digging.

You can see a certain amount from the flagged path along the front of the hall but the grass is getting wet and muddy now!

There will be public "open days" on Sunday 6th May and Bank Holiday Monday 7th May.

I don't know whether these photos will show up here, but I'll give it a try:
(They may be too wide to see, or they may not show up at all. If they're too big to see properly, right click on each picture and choose "View image" then click the Back arrow on your browser to come back to this page!)

It was found near the cottages Brian his hanging on to it with his life. I also would like to get a photo if weather is alright tomorrow I will go in afternoon as Friday is the only day I don't go in and take a few photo's as well.  Been cleaning lots of tile from a fire place today they are going to try and build it again so would like one of that as well .

Not that green fire place? The woman who came in this week who lived in the house until it was knocked down said it wasn't in the house and must have been chucked in with the debris!
