Hopwood Mill Cottage work finishes for Winter

The third year of MAS investigations of the Millers Cottage at Hopwood finishes on 23rd October. This year, over 30 MAS members and volunteers have scraped a trowel over this delightful woodland site hidden close to the Hopwood Manor house. Most of the 19th century building foundations, drains and garden features have been meticulously recorded however features that predate the cottage are know beginning to appear.

Most recently, a shard of broken pottery was found which our site director Robert Huddart believes to be medieval, possibly  from the 13 or 14th century. Hopefully the work will continue next year.
