HS2 in Bucks & Oxfordshire update: St Mary’s Church Field Museum: Book now for third weekend of open days to explore our finds during the archaeological dig

We will be holding our third weekend of open days at our Field Museum at St Mary’s in Stoke Mandeville on Saturday 10 July and Sunday 11 July.

Inside a specially constructed tent the size of a football pitch, archaeologists working on our behalf are currently excavating the remains of the former parish church of St. Mary the Virgin. This is a once in a generation opportunity to excavate the ruins of a medieval church and churchyard. Inside the museum you can ascend the viewing platform for a bird’s eye view of ongoing excavations, as well as displays, films and interactives to explore the history of St. Mary’s Church and the amazing archaeological discoveries in the surrounding area.

We’d love to welcome you onto site to explore this fascinating excavation, where you can learn about life and death in Stoke Mandeville over more than 800 years.

Tickets are available to book now and booking will close at 5pm on Thursday 8 July.
