Ankerwycke Excavation Tour

Tuesday, 26 July, 2022 - 18:00 to 20:00

Join National Trust archaeologist James Brown and assistant archaeologist Harry Farmer on site at their Ankerwycke excavations this month for a guided walk around the site, sharing the most recent findings and insight as well as the wider story. The site is a hive of intrigue with both a Medieval nunnery, a Tudor mansion and possibly more sited within the investigation area.


The tour is free and open for all - no booking necessary. Parking is also free and accessible to the dig, as only a five-minute walk from the excavation site.

5:50 PM - meet on site at Ankerwycke Site carpark gate
6:00 PM - accompanied walk from assembly site/ carpark to dig site
7:30 PM - end of tour

The parking area is located in the grounds of the old Ankerwycke Georgian Mansion. This is accessed by a private road which is on your left as you approach from the M25 heading West along the B376. PLEASE SEE ATTACHED MAPS FOR DETAILS. This is a private road and is unpaved. It is the turning just before Magna Carta Lane (both on the left from this approach). You can use the address Rosendale Gardens, Wraysbury, Staines TW19 5AGA as a rough location guide. Please use the what-3-word location (resort.scouts.insect) for more precision.

Please keep driving straight along the unpaved road until you reach a gate. Parking will be through the Georgian manor gates at the base of operations for the excavations. Please do not bring unnecessary valuables that will be left in the car as the area is transacted by public bridle ways.

Wraysbury station is about a 25minute walk from site.

Please ensure to wear appropriate footwear for the tour and refer to the attached tour information sheet for more details.
