Langford Budville Rally (near Wellington) 10th June

Posted by
|

The post code for rhis dig is TA21 0RT

This will take you down the lane to where you enter the farm drive, (concrete) with a bungalow on left as you turn in. Follow that drive on up the hill, past ALL of the farm buildings. There will be signs out so you won’t miss us! Safe journey all, see you after 07:30!

 

 

This will be a return to a permission we visited some two years ago. We had 200 acres of pasture and only 32 people attending. The weather was atrocious and it was less than lightly detected. Since our last visit, some of the fields have been ploughed and re-seeded with grass. Some fields are new. We will have approximately 100 acres but potentially more as the farmer is hoping to have the silage cut as well before we get there.

Our earlier visit saw hammered, Georgian coinage, crotal bells and other artefacts.

Our permissîon lies just 1 mile as the crow flies outside of the village and backs on to a17th Century Bindon House.

Langford Budville was part of the Milverton Hundred. The Hundred of Milverton is one of the 40 historical Hundreds in the ceremonial county of Somerset, England dating from before the Norman conquest during the Anglo-Saxon era although exact dates are unknown. Each hundred had a ‘fyrd’, which acted as the local defence force and a court which was responsible for the maintenance of the frankpledge system. They also formed a unit for the collection of taxes. The role of the hundred court was described in the Dooms (laws) of King Edgar. The name of the hundred was normally that of its meeting-place

The Church of St. Peter in Langford Budville dates from the 15th century and has been designated as a Grade I listed building. The tower was added in the 16th Century.

There will be hot/cold drinks and light snacks available on this dig.
