Latest news - Archaeological dig at Chedham’s Yard

April 2011

The dig started on 18th April and lasted for four weeks.  Work was undertaken by an army of volunteers under the guidance of professionals from Warwickshire Archaeology.

The dig began by clearing the area outside the buildings where vegetation and soil had built up over the years.

Two tyring plates and many other features that are of interest and that tell the story of the history of the site were uncovered. 

During the dig the two plates were uncovered. One was found to have a cobble and brick surround with a drain leading from the centre to the old river bank.  Apart from a lot of iron objects, many pieces of pottery, tiles, glassware and other objects have been recovered.  The more significant of these are in the process of being cleaned and recorded. 

The original surface of the yard comprising of bricks, tiles and stones has been partially uncovereed.

Pictures of the dig can be found on the image gallery page of this website.
