ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIG

Our second dig took place on 19th and 20th August 2016 on a site south of the churchyard wall (with the kind permission of ​ Oxborouugh Parish Council and the National Trust). This was once the location of four cottages - details about these and their occupants are contained in an information booklet which can be downloaded here:

Several villagers and some members of the public who were visiting Oxborough Hall joined in the dig. Interesting items found included fragments of clay pipes, shells, several pieces of glass, a small medicine bottle and part of the jaw bone of a dog.

The Group put up a small exhibition in November to commemorate Armistice Day.  This is how it looked before having to be moved as a result of the theft of lead from the Bedingfeld Chapel roof.
