News from the Worcester Cathedral roundabout dig

  • 18th March 2015

The excavations on the Cathedral roundabout, which are the first in a series of investigative works to support the Worcester Cathedral square improvement scheme, have now begun. We are in the process of arranging a location for an exhibition to allow us to share information about our discoveries, and there will be plenty of opportunities to get onto site and have a tour. We are also creating a blog, which we will use to share the story of the site and what has been uncovered. If you have stories about the houses we are uncovering we hope to provide opportunities for these to be shared. We will let you know more in the next week or two when plans are in place.

In the meantime, please be aware that the dig is in the middle of a very busy road. Public interest in the excavation is high but we don’t want to cause any accidents so please be patient and in 2-3 weeks we should be ready and safe.
