2022 Community Dig

August 18th – 21st, 09.00 – 17.00

Hyde, Winchester

Once again Hyde900 will be putting on their annual community dig on the site of Hyde Abbey, the final resting place of Alfred the Great. Previous digs have uncovered the remains of the Abbey church and cloisters in the gardens of residents, who live in what was the Inner Close of the Abbey.

In the past finds have included materials from the construction of the Abbey, which was largely destroyed in the years following the Dissolution of the Monasteries.

The dig is open to all, aged 5 and upwards who can take part in 2-hour sessions.
