Hot on the heels of yet another very successful Community Dig in Hyde last weekend, Hyde900 will be hosting more events during this year’s Heritage Open Days from September 10th-12th

Finds from recent Hyde900 Community Digs – including last weekend’s dig – will be on display and there will be a chance to “meet the experts” from the archaeology, heritage and conservation sectors, who will be on hand to answer questions about the fascinating artefacts and abbey remains that have been discovered in Hyde’s back gardens over recent years; on the site once occupied by the inner precincts of Hyde Abbey.  Many of these finds – of national importance – are now on display in Winchester’s City Museum.

Despite the problems of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to report that the tiles made by over 80 tilemakers at the September Hyde900 Heritage Open Days event have now been glazed and fired. We can also report that the level of tile making expertise has improved with fewer losses in the firing process than ever before.

This year we have arranged that your tiles can be collected from a central Winchester location. As soon as COVID-19 regulations allow this we will be in contact with you by email or phone.
