2013 Test Pit Project

Understanding Our Past: Exploring the Hidden History of Meldreth

In October 2012 we were delighted to learn that we were one of the first groups in the country to be awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund All Our Stories grant.  Our project involved digging 32 test pits at different locations in the village during 2013.  Throughout the project we worked closely with Dr Carenza Lewis of the University of Cambridge's Cambridge Community Heritage unit.
