Thank you to everyone who took part in, or provided support during, our 2018 season of Archaeology acitivities at Copped Hall (Spring Dig for members, Archaeology Experience Weekends and Field Schools) – as a result of the enthusiasm and commitment shown by everyone that came along we have continued to find even more complexity in what was thought to be a simple Tudor staircase, and we have revealed more details of the complete brick structures in the garden area to the West of the house.

A summary and photographs of the activities can be found in the Copped Hall Archaeology 2018 Report. TO CORRECT
