Weaverthorpe Geophysical Survey

‘The Friends of St Andrews, Weaverthorpe, have secured funding from the LEADER Coast, Wolds, Wetlands & Waterways programme for geophysical surveys in the churchyard of St Andrews and on the site of the adjacent medieval manor house of the Fitzherberts at Weaverthorpe with the hope of learning more about these two iconic sites. Included in the programme is an opportunity for local people and others to learn how to undertake resistivity and gradiometer surveys (the ‘Geofizz’ of Time Team) under the expert guidance of the Landscape Research Centre (LRC). In the longer term LRC have agreed to lend The Friends equipment to allow us to undertake our own surveys and The Friends and LRC will be running a further training session on understanding the results later in the year. An initial survey training session was held on July 16 and there will be a second session on Sunday 4th September (10am-4pm). If you are interested in being involved please contact Pete or Jill Wilson at Rarey Farm, Weaverthorpe (01944-738282) or
