Tuesday 14th June 2016: Visit to West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village

There will be a day trip to visit the West Stow Anglo-Saxon village on 14th June 2016.  This site has reconstructions and remains of hall houses and sunken feature building, plus artefacts so it is well worth the trip.

West Stow is near Bury St Edmonds so we will be car sharing.  Several people have already agreed to drive while others have expressed an interest in being driven.  I have organised a guided tour of the site starting at 14:00.  The cost of the site entrance and the guided tour is £6 per head.

If you would like to come along please send me an email or phone me.
