Our Next Meeting
Wednesday, May18th at 7.30 pm in the Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon.

'The Lost Chapel of Bincknoll'

Speaker: Bob Clarke.

In the summer of 2014, a chance discovery in a garden at Bincknoll – between Wroughton and Broad Town - answered a centuries-old mystery.  Records show that a chapel was situated somewhere in the landscape around Bincknoll hamlet, although this was demolished in the 17th century and the location was lost.

Some 400 years later, an excavation carried out by Broad Town Archaeology and members of the community has, it is hoped, relocated the site.  This session will discuss the findings of 2014 and reveal the latest discoveries from the 2015 season.

Meetings are free to members, but there is a £3.00 charge for visitors.  Why not join us?  Membership is still only £10 a year.  For details of the 2016 programme of talks and events, click here.
