ARCHAEOLOGISTS and volunteers will attempt to throw light on history of one of Ledbury’s most interesting homes, Abbots Lodge.

The lodge, which is overlooked by St Michael and All Angels Church, is known to have been used as a vicarage at the close of the sixteenth century.

But it’s origins go back further than that, to the thirteenth century.

A dig in the garden has been organised by the Victoria County History project, to begin on Tuesday September 30.

Victoria County History volunteers are currently researching the early history of the town, under the “England’s Past for Everyone” scheme.

The information will eventually be published in a book.
