Time Team comes to Poulton !
Time Team were at Poulton from the 20th to the 22nd of June to film an episode
for the well-known Channel 4 programme. They were searching for the 'lost' Abbey
of Poulton, which some people believed was buried under the remains of Poulton
Hall. Limited excavations in 1998 had been unable to resolve the mystery,
and everyone was hoping that Time Team's experts could help to locate the
precise location of the Abbey, which was founded by 1153 but abandoned early in
the 13th century.
for a selection of photos from Time Team's visit, or view the Poulton
Project Gazette. The Time Team artist, Victor
Ambrus, left us a souvenir
cartoon signed by all Time Team members.
So what did they find
? You'll have to wait until the Time Team episode featuring Poulton is
broadcast on April 1st 2007 ! Or alternatively, why not join us at Poulton as a volunteer
or as a Friend of Poulton, and help us to make
more discoveries at this fascinating archaeological site.
