WWW OUR NEXT DIG header 2

Weekend Wanderers direction signs are usually in place no earlier than 8.30 am on the morning of a dig. The signs are designed to be easily seen from a distance and stand out against foliage especially in the autumn.

The slats on our signs are 2’ long and have a Weekend Wanderers logo on the header board to avoid confusion with others signs put up for cycle events, film location or car boots etc.

SUNDAY JANUARY 14

STAGSDEN

BEDFORDSHIRE

Following a short break from running digs last month, we have now got our first dig of the year to look forward to. The dig is on growing crops in and around Stagsden. We will have a vast selection of fields to choose from amounting to well over 100-acres of winter wheat. Our best finds from previous visits to this land date back to the Iron Age with the occasional 1/4 stater and brooch through to patches of Roman finds up to Stephen pennies. The finds are sporadic and you cover a fair amount of land before hitting a good target but when you do it can be a decent find. Best to try to locate one of the hotspots and the regular enthusiasts for this site will know where they are!

 

CLUB NEWS FOR 2018
So, 2018 looks promising for some great club digs especially after the summer harvest gets under way with lots of new land to explore. We have to use or lose existing WW farms of course. Not returning to them will see us lose permission so we will keep your favourite farms on the calendar at some point. Thursday digs should recommence in February too.


Ignore the rumours that we are packing up, lol! We just had a December break from running club digs and looking forward to seeing you all shortly. We will try to spread ourselves over various counties so we will be too far for some and very close to others. However, these day it is increasingly likely that extra travel time may be required to access new farm land. See you soon!
