Birgitta Hoffmann and Kathleen Morris
Archaeology is not just about digging (although we do a bit of that, too); we look at the people as well as places and artefacts. Our small group has finished surveying the church and cemetery of St.Bartholomew’s in Wilmslow, Cheshire and we are now preparing our records for publication. We have our own blog (Views from Wilmslow) and website, which is currently being rewritten by members of the group and organise exhibitions in Wilmslow Library.
This multi-period church includes Medieval, Tudor and Victorian work, probably on a Saxon foundation, and is the centre of a large rural and urban parish on the fringes of Manchester, which includes Quarry Bank Mill.
We welcome new members – no prior experience in archaeology is necessary because part of the fun is learning new skills and passing on knowledge and expertise to others.
