Members of Pinchbeck History and Archaeology Project group are hoping to resume their search of the village’s lost manor.
If the results of a recent GPS survey prove successful, the group plans to apply for Lottery funding to resume the search after a break of more than seven months.
Group leader John Lyon has paid for previous archaeological digs in Pinchbeck , but says it’s time for funding to come from elsewhere.
He said: “I have enjoyed doing it as a hobby. I have found 64 coins on that piece of land we were working on and religious artefacts.”
The final dig will concentrate on the ruins of the Cust family residence as listed on a 1789 map.
