The Summer of Archaeology at the National Trust Brockhampton Estate, Herefordshire, is a Heritage Lottery Funded project which is investigating the early history of the estate with particular interest in the grounds surrounding the 12th Century Chapel and 15th Century moated house and gardens.

Over the course of this summer, visitors and volunteers to the site, including members of Herefordshire Mind, Bromyard and District Local History Society and ECHO Herefordshire are getting to grips with archaeological techniques from dowsing, geophysics, survey and excavation to explore the picturesque site’s origins.

The aim of the project is to greatly improve our understanding of the estate, not only delving into the question of whether there was an Anglo-Saxon settlement at Brockhampton but how the estate has changed through time.
