Hyde900's fifth community dig is set to take place 19 – 22 August following the success of previous years' events. This year’s dig returns to what was the Inner Precinct of Hyde Abbey, exploring the remains of the abbey’s medieval cloisters.
It is hoped that this year's finds will once again help to illuminate the life of the inhabitants of the abbey, which flourished from 1110 to the Dissolution in 1538/9.
Full training will be given and the event is open to all! Please note that under 18s need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.
The cost per 2 hour session is £12 unless you are a member of Hyde900, in which case the cost is £8. Children 11 and under are free.
