North West Dig Dates & Information

WRG (NW) digs 2019 - unless otherwise stated, please contact Ju Davenport for all digs information and bookings:

2 - 10 March - Lancaster Canal mini-camp. Laying blocks on the laid membrane. Accommodation will be in the hostel in Kendal.  YOU DONT have to do the full week as this is a rolling camp. Please contact Ju as soon as you can if you would like to attend.

------------------------------------

Whether or not you need a lift, please let the Ju Davenport (See WRG NW Contact Us) know that you're going, so that meals and accommodation can be organised in advance.

Transport to weekend digs can usually be arranged from Manchester, leaving on a Friday evening (often about 7:30 pm from Failsworth or City Centre). WRG transport is FREE.

The cost of food is usually £10 for a full weekend (2 Breakfast, 2 Lunches and 1 Evening Meal) or £2 for a single meal. Accommodation is FREE, but usually quite basic.

Please note that dates shown as Jan 1-2, say, signify a weekend camp with accommodation, whereas Jan 1/2 signifies two 1-day digs without accommodation.  If anyone needs accommodation for local (to Manchester) digs, this can usually be arranged - please let us know.

·         More exploratory work on the railway embankment at Pant with accommodation in Llanymynech Church Hall.  There may be some machine work though this is to be confirmed. Contact Malcolm Bridge
