Multi-million pound restoration project

One of Gloucester’s “unsung historical treasures” will be restored to former glory as a major regeneration project gets underway.

The churchyard at St Mary de Crypt in Southgate Street will be closed for more than a year as work at the centuries-old church gets underway.

Discover de Crypt – November newsletter

November project update: Newsletter

We had a great week at the end of November with the exciting and educational dig in the Old Crypt Schoolroom. Thanks to all the volunteers who came to help and to Kevin and Nick from Avon Archaeology Ltd who took so much time to share their archaeological wisdom!

The volunteers found some fantastic small finds including a toy canon and writing slates and styli that help us imagine the schoolboys who once worked and played here!

There are more photos  from the dig by clicking on the photo below which will take you to the Discover de Crypt Facebook page.
