First Weekend of Archaeology

We are having  fascinating start to our excavations at Eastcote House, with three areas opened and lots of volunteers eager to get their hands on the secrets of the past. We have revealed half of the Manor House, and hope to be able to define the 16th century parts and later additions.

The walls are showing up.

We are also looking for the coach house and are investigating a sunken wall here known as a haha! Within the biggest trench is a basment, with literally tons of rubble and large parts of Eastcote House itself bulldozed in.
