Event - Kirkby Hardwick Open Day

The excavation at Kirkby Hardwick (taking place 3rd to 14th October) will be open to members of the public on Saturday 15th October, between 10am and 4pm.
Visitors will have the opportunity to take guided tours of the site and to see some of the finds.  The local history group will also be recording memories that people may have of the house from before it was demolished in 1966.
Come along and find out about the excavation of this fascinating piece of archaeology, offering an insight into a multi-phase high status building, which was once one of the finest Tudor buildings in Nottinghamshire.
Kirkby Hardwick is located between Sutton in Ashfield, and Kirkby in Ashfield, off the B6021, Low Moor Road.  Parking is at Sutton Parkway Railway Station, and the site will be signpost from there.
If you are interested in volunteering for the excavation, there are very few spaces left.  The excavation runs from 3rd to 14th October, NOT including weekends.  If you want more information get in touch.
