An archaeological dig in Stanstead Abbotts: Volunteers welcome!

The planned small expansion of housing in the village at Netherfield Lane off Roydon Road gives us the opportunity to discover more of our history courtesy of the land owners and former large-scale village employers, Websters Ltd.

Their continuing 50-year long involvement with the village will include financing a 5-day professional Archaeological Dig starting on June 20th in an area that has revealed evidence of our ancestors going back 8,000 years. If you can afford a day or the whole week, and whether you are experienced or not, you are invited to take a ‘hands-on’ look into the history of the village.

If you are interested in volunteering please contact Mike Dorman for more information on Email: or Phone: 07899 992951.
