Those who attended the talk by Roger Mould on 4th June will know that the Ramsey Abbey Community Project has been successful in securing Heritage Lottery funding following extensive research as they continue to search for the elusive remains of Ramsey Abbey.
They are now ready to excavate in August – 13th to 24th. As the project has been awarded lottery funding a professional company will head up the excavation. They will have three big trenches open aimed at features shown on the resisitivity survey.
They would welcome volunteers.

The Great Benedictine Abbey of Ramsey was the first of the great religious houses in Eastern Fenland to be founded and in its time one of the most important, influential and wealthiest Abbey in the Fens. In its heyday it was home to at least 80 Monks, and behind its walls a renowned school was founded in about 985. For over 500 years the Abbey flourished, but in 1539 the Abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII.
