September 15

Heritage Weekend at Old Clee, Cleethorpes. Theme: Picturing the Past.


Society Dig. September.

Messages from the Chairman:

Hi Every Body

Just a thank you for your efforts of this year’s dig. It was successful mainly due to all your efforts.  I will, when the information is available, do an update.

This year’s dig will commence on Saturday 15.09.2018.  Dr. Steve Willis will arrive on Saturday afternoon and it is hoped to set out the trench locations.  A mechanical digger will be on site for 09.30hrs., Sunday 16.09.2018 to assist with opening up the trenches.

It is suggested, to avoid standing about on site, that if you want to join in the dig to attend from 09.30hrs on Sunday 16.09.2018 or whatever time is suitable for you.  Normal site working is from 09.30hrs – 17.00hrs, or thereabouts.

The site is located in a field directly opposite the former married quarters of RAF Binbrook.  From the Binbrook road take the turning signposted Brookenby and Kingsmead Park.

A portaloo toilet facility will be on site.  Please bring your own refreshments, the nearest shop is in Binbrook village approx. 2 miles away.

If you require any further info please do not hesitate to contact me.  01472 236827;  07906 695 014.#

regards   David  R


The Dig near Binbrook will occur for two weeks from 15 September with our usual liaison with Prof. Steve Willis and his students from the University of Kent. The society has had a very fruitful relationship with Steve for many years and we hope this will continue. The site is getting more and more interesting with the possibility of a Roman high-status building being found eventually.

Anyone who is interested in participating in the dig or simply wishing to see what’s going on should contact the Chairman whose details are in the Contact section of the website.

July 14

Humberston Picnic in the Paddock 2 – 6 p.m. The Society will put on a presentation as last year.

The society hopes that there will be a continuation of the Brookenby Dig (which shows much of interest from the Roman period) and further garden excavations by a local school  (with help from Cambridge University) which have been so successful this year.
