Pinchbeck History and Archaeology Project (PHAP) is seeking a new home for all of the artefacts unearthed from digs undertaken in the village to be displayed.

The group, who last week appealed in the Guardian for new members, want a space where the public can see and enjoy their finds.

PHAP leader John Lyon says items are currently housed at his business but have to be removed for factory expansion.

The collection includes a vase amount of historic coins.

“Space in a building such as the old court house in Spalding would be ideal but somewhere available for the public is what is needed.

“It would be a travesty if the items we have unearthed were again lost, possibly forever.

“Our archaeology team only really scratched the surface and are confident that there is still a wealth of history to be discovered.”

The initial dig at Healey’s Field established there was much medieval activity in progress with links also to the old Spalding Priory and to the Civil War.

Anyone who can help with displaying the artefacts should call Ray Tucker on 01775 725253.
