Here at The Chester House Estate we are rich with history and archaeology and we will be running opportunities for the community to get hands on with history!


These digs will be run by us at the Chester House Estate in partnership with The University of Leicester giving our community a chance to gain knowledge about the history of The Chester House Estate that dates back to the Mesolithic era.

On site we have a walled Roman town that is a Scheduled Monument, which is the highest level of heritage protection that can be designated, our aim is to protect it for future generations and share the incredible history with the public!

More information will be revealed soon about the Archaeological Digs, check back soon for further information. In the meantime, if you are interested in these or would like any further information email out Archaeological Archive Curator, Ben Donnelly - Symes, at the following address Ben.Donelly-Symes@northnorthants.gov.uk.
