Binham Local History Group is delighted to confirm that this event is definitely going ahead as the field will not be ready for the landowner to start beet sewing by next Saturday and he has therefore kindly given his permission for the event take place.
Using Binham Memorial Hall as our base, please arrive from 9.00 am on the day with a view of teams to be out on the field by 9.30 am. We will return to the hall for a lunch break and also about 3.00pm for review. Tea and coffee and biscuits will be available at the hall, but please bring your own packed lunch. if you are unable to make the start time then please do still come along and join in when you can. For those who have not been before , the village hall is opposite Binham Priory and there is car parking available.
Following on from two previous events Binham Local History Group are endeavouring to organise one more day potentially on Saturday 16th March 2013 to carry out a joint field walking and metal detecting day on the Hall Close field.
It is dependant on the level of interest from field walkers, detectorists and the availability of the field. The landowner has tentatively agreed but with the caveat that it is dependant on weather conditions allowing him to begin sowing the field.
If you feel you would be interest in joining this event on the proviso that we are able to confirm slightly nearer the date, can you reply to firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know if you would like to participate as a field walker or metal detector.
We are currently awaiting the results from the original field walking finds from 2/3rd Feb. from Norfolk Historic Environment Service and we have had some interesting finds from our metal detecting last weekend which will also go them for identification.
