A chance to excavate the remains of one of Nottinghamshire's great medieval
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
If you are interested in coming along or want to find out more, please get
in touch with the community archaeologists.
