Beetley was part of the Manor of Elmham, held by William Beaufoe, Bishop of Thetford, with the name deriving from the two Anglo Saxon words betel and bietel, both words applying to a clearing where wooden mallets are made.

This will be the first of half a dozen digs planned on this permission. The remainder of the land is arable, so we are lucky in this farmer having some pasture, enabling us to squeeze a dig in whilst the rest of his land is cropped.

One of the fields is to the rear of his farm and from here you can see the 14th Century St. Mary’s church, the second is opposite and the third and largest. At the far end of the road leading to his farm.

In order to manage this, we will be endeavouring to spend the first couple of hours detecting near the parking, and then all drive down to the larger area where we will spend the rest of the day. Anyone wishing to remain in the first two fields are welcome to do so.

Please register below if you would like to attend this event. Please remember to de-register if you are unable to attnd as failure to do so will result in your removal from the group and you will no longer be able to attend out our digs.
