Stage 1 of the project was completed in 2018 with funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund

The main objectives of stage 1 were to:

  • Investigate what structural repairs were required to stabilise the buildings.

  • Carry out a community archaeological dig.

  • Determine if there was public interest in Jane Pit and this project.

  • Gather information from and involve the community.


Stage 2 of the project was submitted for funding to The National Lottery Heritage Fund in March 2019. 

Proposals included:

  • Carry out essential repairs to the buildings to stabilise for future years.

  • Install 4 information panels with historical information on.

  • Add a path around the buildings making the site accessible for everyone.

  • Install a seating area.

  • Create a landscaping plan to include tree, shrub and wild flower planting

  • Carry out a second community archaeological dig, with slightly different trench locations from the first dig.


As our stage 2 bid was unsuccessful, we are looking at alternative options.

For our stage two submission to the National Lottery Heritage Fund we supplied a variety of supporting documents to support our bid.  You can download and view some of these documents below.  If you have any questions at all then feel free to e-mail us at
