Archaeologists dig deep into hall's history
An 18th century greenhouse heating system and a 15th century boundary wall are among various findings at the ongoing Ayscoughfee Hall dig.
At the end of January Norfolk Archaeology Unit workers moved into the grounds of the Spalding hall to delve into the rich history of the building, excavating near the well and digging trenches into the grass.

The work aims to gain a better understanding of the history and archaeology of the gardens and the way in which they developed over time and several schools from the area have toured the grounds.
