The case for re-excavating Hyde Abbey

datePosted on 11:14, December 22nd, 2014

Partly as a consequence of the conclusion to the Unmarked Grave Investigation, there has been a resurgence of interest in the Hyde Abbey Site where Hyde Abbey Garden is now located. In particular, and contrary to popular understanding, it now appears that there is still much to be investigated that could reveal significant new information about this important site.

This would be a very significant step and requires extensive consultation with all those involved before any plans can be made. But we believe that it needs serious consideration, and very preliminary discussions have begun.

Professor Martin Biddle’s paper setting out the case for re-excavation is here:
