Community Archaeology - Norwell Graveyard Survey (Notts)

On Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd May Nottinghamshire County Councils Community Archaeology team will be returning to Norwell churchyard to continue with the survey of the gravestones there. The survey involves recording the inscriptions on the gravestones as well as their condition and decoration. No experience is necessary as they will take you through the process.

They will be there between 10am and 3pm both days. There is a toilet at the church but you are advised to bring you own lunch and wear suitable clothing appropriate to the weather. You might also like to bring a folding stool, kneeling mat, or picnic blanket if you have one, as you will probably end up sitting on the grass in order to read the inscriptions. The road by the church is also quite narrow, so please ensure that you park sensibly and respectfully, allowing ample space for farm machinery to pass. This may mean you have to park a little further up the road into the village.

If you'd like to come along please contact Emily at to let her have an idea of numbers.

In addition, they can offer limited lifts from Trent Bridge House, West Bridgford, leaving at 9am. If this is of interest to you please get in touch. Spaces are on a first-come-first served basis.
