This event will be held on 70 acres of pasture spread out over 10 fields.


Traces of a Roman road and of a Roman camp called locally “the Gaer” are near the River Severn, in a township of the parish called Thornbury.

In 1868, the National Gazetteer said of the parish

FORDEN, a parish in the hundred of Cawrse, county Montgomery, North Wales, 3 miles N. of Montgomery, and 4 S.E. of Welshpool, its post town. The Oswestry and Newtown railway has a station at each of these towns. Forden is situated on the eastern bank of the river Severn, near Offa’s Dyke, and includes the townships of Hem, Kilkewyd, and several others. The Welsh suffered defeat here in the reign of Edward I. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Hereford, value £112, in the patronage of the Grocers’ Company. The church is dedicated to St Michael. It contains monuments of the Devereux family. There are a few charities, producing about £4 per annum. There is a National school. The principal building in the parish is the House of Industry for the district of Montgomery and Pool. In the neighbourhood are remains of entrenched camps

The parish church of St Michael and All Angels, about half a mile to the west of the road from Welshpool to Montgomery, was enlarged in 1830. For some three hundred years the church was the burial-place of the family of Devereux, whose estate at Nantcribba was within the parish. The marble font, oval in shape, was presented in 1794 by Richard Edmunds, Esq.

The event will start at 9am after a short briefing so please arrive between 8am and 8.45am. Digging finishes at 4.30pm. Parking will be on hard standing.

There will be no catering at this event so please bring food and refreshments with you.

    Hi Joanne, sorry for the late notice but I’m not going to be able to make this event and the registration is closed so I’m unable to unregister.
    Circumstances have arisen that prevent me travelling tomorrow, so once again I apologise and hope it doesn’t cause you any inconvenience.
