We had a fantastic turnout at our second open day at the Central Winchester Regeneration site. Visitors to the previous open day were eager to view our progress in Trench 1, and to see the dramatic, waterlogged Trench 3, which is now up-and-running with shoring and pumps. Our interactive activities in Abbey Gardens, such as the finds washing experience, were met with resounding enthusiasm, as evidenced by one young visitor who insisted, ‘No, Dad, I don’t want to go to the park; this is much better!’
Don’t worry if you missed it, there will be another on 7th October. In the meantime the site will be open between 8th-17th September from 12-2pm as part of Winchester Heritage Open Days.
