Comment on local history on the

Hogarth’s House has a rare chance for the public to help explore the history of the site. For a week in April you can help the project archaeologists excavate archaeological trenches to explore the history of the garden.

Volunteers will be helping with the actual digging and recording the findings but do not need to be experienced diggers.

The work is part of plans to develop the grounds of the House, on the Great West Road after a successful first round award from the Heritage Lottery. The project will see the garden, including a mulberry tree dating back to the 17th century, refurbished and replanted.

If you could like to do some digging and are over 18 then please register your interest in advance by contacting Catherine Edwards at
