Quantock Village Test Pitting

We are conducting test pit excavations in villages around the fringes of the Quantock Hills Landscape. This is part of the Quantock Landscape Partnership Scheme and we will be working together with local residents and the AONB. We hope to improve our understanding of the development of these villages during the medieval and post-medieval periods.

Our first excavations are starting in Bicknoller (16th/17th October).


In subsequent years we will also be digging in Crowcombe, Kingston St Mary and Nether Stowey.
