Maugersbury archaeology......

The standing stone in the narrow field next to Upsilon House is one of three stones in Maugersbury now referred to as the Sarsen or Sarsden Stones.  The other stones are in the gardens of Upsilon House and Sarsden House. 

 

In 2018 the stone in the field caught the eye of an enthusiastic amateur archaeologist, Andy Waring. During August 2020, between Covid lockdowns, Andy braved one day of scorching sunshine and one day of torrential rain to make an evaluation dig in the field.

 

He has produced a comprehensive report here and is keen to return to do further investigations together with his associate Professor Darvill of Bournemouth University.

We await his next visit .....
