My name is Dale Munn and I am a post-graduate student at Oxford University studying Archaeology. For my dissertation, I have chosen to study the fantastic moated manor house site in Castle Field, Barton Seagrave and the surrounding settlement as it was around 1300 A.D. There has been very little archaeological investigation in the past into this part of Barton Seagrave although some medieval pottery and evidence of houses at the side of the A6 have been identified.

I am very keen to involve the residents living in the area around the village green, St. Botolph’s Road, the northern end of Polwell Lane and the cottages either side of the A6 opposite and below the cricket field by carrying out a community archaeology dig. This would mean volunteer residents in the target areas digging a 1m square test pit in their gardens and collecting and recording any finds for analysis. Each pit, I believe, will need to be dug to 1 metre to get far enough down for medieval artifacts. Full instructions will be supplied on how to dig the test pit and record any finds. For those of you worried about ruining your lovely lawns, don’t worry, the process will ensure your lawn is put back just as it appears now! You can take as long as you like to do the dig, but it should also be do-able in under two days if you fancy just getting on with it.

I am planning the digs to take place before the end of April this year so that I can complete my dissertation over the spring and summer. There may be some home owners in the target areas who don’t mind having their garden dug up for this project but don’t fancy doing the actual digging, so I am also looking for local volunteers to help dig someone else’s garden. Please do contact me if you would like to do this if the opportunity arises.

I will be delivering leaflets to the houses in this area in early February followed by an introductory talk in the church rooms on Saturday 4th March at 11.00 am. This is a very exciting project for those interested in archaeology and wishing to find out about the history of the village. If you would like to find out more before my talk on the project please feel free to email me on:

Many of you wil have heard that a fire badly damaged an elderly couples buyngalow recently. The couple affected are now in temporary accomodation and back in the village. The community came together to help and initially raised just under a £1,000 via Just Giving to help them get back on their feet quickly.

Following on from this, the Community is also holding a further fund raising event at St. Botolphs Church on Saturday 18th February @ 7pm. An evening of entertainment and music is being put on and there will be various stalls and a raffle to help raise further funds. Tickets are just £5 and can be obtained from Joshua Daniel on 07543 321214. See attached poster for more information.

Finally, after many years of wishing and waiting, your new Village Hall is taking shape on the Redrow estate just off the new Manor Road entrance. Having listened to residents desires for such a facility for so long, we believe the Village Hall will be an invaluable and exciting asset to the Village as it will provide:

• Dedicated and secure Nursery

• High ceiling sports & events Hall

• Secondary community Hall

• Family friendly Café Lounge

• Meeting Room

The construction project should be completed by March next year and we are aiming to open the Village Hall to users in May, once we have finished equipping the building for use. The facility will be owned and managed, on behalf of the community, by the Barton Seagrave Parish Council and we would like to invite all residents to public walk-in sessions we are holding in Church House (next to St. Botolph’s Church) so that we can listen to your input and ideas for its use, and also share with you:

• Our vision and objectives for the Village Hall

• The kind of activities and events it will facilitate

• How to hire facilities in the Village Hall

• How it will be governed and funded

• Opportunities for volunteering

These walk-in sessions will be held on the following dates:

o Wednesday 28th December 2pm – 4pm

o Thursday 29th December 6pm – 9pm

o Saturday 31st December 10am – 1pm

o Saturday 7th January 11am – 2pm

We hope you can make one of these sessions and we look forward to meeting you to discuss the opportunities this fantastic new asset will give us all.

We also have a new Facebook page for the Village Hall - please do Like and Follow us on there to...
