Archaeology

The most notable archaeological find in Wold Newton was an Anglo-Saxon burial urn excavated in Swinhope Walk in 1828; see the Urns page.  It having been ploughed out long ago, the exact location of the excavated barrow in Swinhope Walk was a mystery, until an aerial survey by Contour Geophysics during the 2018 summer drought.


More modest finds, field archaeology and crop marks evidence human settlement over several millennia.  Here's a couple of photos of a pottery shard (medieval?) found in the lower section of Cow Walk field, along the line of the former track into the East (open) Field
and a Tudor brooch unearthed nearby.


If you've found anything interesting while out walking around the parish, please contact us and send a photograph.
