Thanks to the efforts of Tom and Karen Burn and their farm at Hunting Hall we have finally succeeded in gaining the necessary permissions from Natural England to return to the farm to continue our excavations. As many of you know we have been investigating the area within the prominent prehistoric earthworks for evidence of ancient farming and we’ve done this with great success. For lots more information go to: http://lowickheritagegroup.org/huntinghall.html

This year our ‘window’ for operations extends until 31st October and we’ve decided to dig during September when hopefully the weather will be kind and the majority, if not all, of the Covid 19 restrictions will have been lifted. In any event a suitable and robust risk assessment will have been
completed to allow us to enjoy our hobby safely. It is intended to begin the actual dig today, Wednesday 1st September. Preparations began towards the end of August with erection
of the safety fence and removal of the topsoil over the area under investigation. Once the soil has been removed we needed volunteers to help ‘clean up’ the exposed surface in preparation for the excavation.

We are a self-funding group led by a professional archaeologist. It’s our intention to dig on 20 days during the month and so far we have received pledges of money sufficient for 15 days of his time. We’re hopeful of further pledges in order to fund the full period. We like to think of our dig as a very enjoyable and fun hobby that’s open to everyone, whether experienced or complete novice. Advice and instruction are available to everyone and the tasks aren’t limited to digging holes in the ground! There’s photographing, measuring, drawing and recording to name a few so there are ‘jobs’ for everyone in a wonderful friendly team.

Please email me at lowickheritagegroup@gmail.com should you require any further information, hopefully about joining us.

Lowick Heritage Group provide details of their first meeting in the Village Hall. As you can see from the details below, those who wish to remain at home for the while should be able to access the meeting via Zoom.
Hello Everyone,
Please make a note of this date and time:
Monday 13th September 2021 at 7.30pm
I’m excited to announce that we’re back!  After what seems such a long time we are finally able to recommence our ‘live’ presentations in Lowick Village Hall.
This year we are privileged to have Dr. Margaret Collin join us as our first speaker. The topic is :
 ‘Old Melrose: Rediscovering St. Cuthbert’s Anglo-Saxon Monastery and Medieval Pilgrimage Chapel’.
As always the September presentation is preceded by our very brief AGM. This year we are sorry to announce that Julie Gibbs has left our committee and she will be very difficult to replace. If you feel that you would like to become a member of the LHG Committee I would be very pleased to hear from you.
I’m aware that some among us, who for all the right reasons, are a little reluctant to venture into public areas after the C19 restrictions. I can assure you that we are following the Covid 19 safe rules set by the Village Hall Committee, however, it’s possible that subject to some conditions we may be able to stream Dr. Collin’s talk via the Zoom platform for those who are unable to join us. I’ll send out an update about that before the date.
All the best for now
