Dig - Kirkby Hardwick Medieval House

A chance to excavate the remains of one of Nottinghamshire's great medieval houses....

Kirkby Hardwick is one of Nottinghamshire's lost great houses. It had medieval origins, built on and altered over the centuries, to become a grand residence. It was tragically demolished in 1966, leaving only a few fragments of the original building upstanding.

Join the Community Archaeologists and Kirkby and District Archaeology Group in a fortnight excavation to uncover the remains of this once-glorious house.

The excavation aims to uncover some of the foundations and footprint of the building, and start to understand how the building developed over time.

The dig will take place from Monday 3rd October until Friday 14th October, between 9am and 4.30pm (tbh).

Spaces are very limited and will be given strictly on first-come-first-served.

If you are interested in coming along or want to find out more, please get in touch with the community archaeologists.
