Saturday 29th June 2019 – BAS visit to Silchester

Visit the University of Reading’s ongoing excavations at the Roman Bath House in Silchester, with a guided tour by Professor Mike Fulford.

Please meet at 3pm in the public Car Park located just outside the town walls in Wall Lane.  It is a 20 minute walk to the excavation from there.   From Wokingham the easiest approach is through Beech Hill and Mortimer.  For sat nav users, the postcode is RG7 2HP.

The visit proper will last 1.5 to 2 hours.  You need to be warned that the walk down and across the field to the trenches is rough and uneven so walking poles/sticks are recommended for anyone unsteady on their feet.  There are portaloos at the car park and on the site, but no refreshments.  There will be a donation box available – please be generous.
There may be teas available in the nearby church.
Booking not essential but if you would like to go please let Anne Harrison know so we have an idea of numbers
