Weekend 28th & 29th July 2018

After months of endless sunshine we unfortunately chose for our event the wettest and windiest weekend possible. It was intended to be held in tents in the grounds of the Cob House Country Park, which was a perfect setting for it, but the weather conspired against us!

Even so, we did manage to run it on the Saturday using the sturdier tents that survived the stormy night, and were visited by a number of interested visitors and old friends.

After our break from Winnall Mill last week to go field-walking, we returned to investigating the Machine Room that recently yielded both interesting features and equally interesting finds.

 

This week the group did some field-walking in a field near Wichenford. Over the past year the field had yielded a number of interesting finds spanning a long period of history, so the Wichenford History group arranged for some Geophys to be done on one particular area where the best concentration of finds were discovered.

Yet another foray this week to the old Water Mill that is revealing still more of its secrets. There were seven of the team present this week, mainly focused on the area known as the Machine Room within the ruined shell of the Mill House. The area at the front of the building is gradually being cleared back to reveal a brick floor that has,over time, been covered with soil and rubble.
