Fieldwork Opportunity at the Kaims

Following on from our exciting and productive weekend the Bradford Kaims Wetland Heritage Research Project will be in back in the field on Wednesday 29th of February, Wednesday 7th March and Saturday 10th March.

Based on the results from the coring last weekend and the archaeological investigations over the last few years the project will be targeting specific areas with test pits.

So if you would like to volunteer, please send an email to Graeme Young at or call him on 07711187651 as we will have limited spaces. We very much hope to see you there!


The site is located at Hoppen Hall Farm – to get there you will need to take the B1341 between the A1 and Bamburgh.  Heading towards Bamburgh, you pass over the main rail line level crossing just past Lucker, then take the first right hand turn along a rough track heading up hill towards Hoppen Hall farm and cottages.  The site is accessible only by prior arrangement, and there are holiday lets near the area we will be parking at,  as well as the main farm-house, so we ask that all participants show due care and respect to the privacy of the residents and guests.  We will park and gather together by the main farm buildings, then walk through the fields for around ten minutes to access the wetland site.

Bring warm, waterproof cloths and plenty of food and drink.
