Medieval (style!) tiles collected!

datePosted on 09:46, January 17th, 2019 by Site admin

Twenty  tile makers from September’s Hyde900 Heritage Open Day event have so far  collected their tiles – and have been universally delighted with the results. Emails have gone out to all who wished to have their tiles glazed and fired – at least those where the email addresses could be deciphered! The two other days for collection are Saturday 19  and Tuesday 22 January. If any tile maker wishes to collect their tile, and hasn’t already been in contact is invited to contact the event organiser at [email protected].”

W2W: The Wantage to Winchester Cycle Ride 2016

datePosted on 15:35, May 17th, 2016 by Site admin

W2W Cycle Ride, 10am, Sunday 17th July

Now in its 9th year, the W2W is a 53-mile cycle ride from Wantage in Oxfordshire to Winchester in Hampshire, starting in the birthplace of King Alfred the Great and finishing at his final resting place.

Along the way, you travel along quiet country lanes along the Vale of the White Horse, over the Marlborough Downs, across the Thames valley and over the North Hampshire Downs, then enjoy miles of easy cycling through the sleepy villages of the Bourne valley.

The ride is non-competitive. We provide directions, signs and marshals to keep you on track and refreshments en route and at the end. Advance entry is £7 for Hyde900 members or £10 for non-members; entry on the day (if spaces are available) is £12.

In an exciting new development Hyde900 has worked with local archaeology organisation WARG to investigate what lies beneath a garden in King Alfred Place which covers a key corner of the demolished Hyde Abbey. Volunteers were invited to take part and there was an open day to view the finds on Sunday 24th April.

The event proved to be a roller coaster of emotions for those taking part. Midday of the last day and the mood was sombre with little having been found. Then new information led to an amazing result. Time Team couldn’t have choreographed it better.
