Walks and site visits:
Sunday July 20th at 2.00pm – Shorne Community Excavation, Kent
This community excavation has been running for many years and is uncovering Randall Manor which was occupied for over 100 years by the de Cobham family.
The community-based project has been uncovering the foundations of this 13th century Manor, that was slowly lost within the woods.
Although nothing survives above ground, the Manor sits on a rectangular platform, with a series of fish ponds running along one side.
So far archaeologists have looked at the kitchen building, complete with massive stone hearth, the bakery, the store buildings and the fish ponds. In 2009 they began to examine the main buildings of the Manor, where the Lord would have lived. In 2010 this work continued, as well as looking at the Lord's toilet! We also worked with local schools to uncover the original courtyard of the Manor.
Thursday July 24th at 2.00pm – Tidemills post-medieval site, Sussex
Meet by the level crossing just before 2pm. The tour will give a potted history to the site while looking at some of the extant remains, which include the 1760s tidal mill, the associated village, a Great War seaplane base and the Chailey Beach hospital for sick children. We will also visit the site of the current excavations, investigating the heart of the village. (A location map will be provided with booking confirmation)
Other site visits are being arranged including Lyminge and Woking Palace. Details tbc.
