This is a practical workshop where we will be revealing and recording the remains of the stables in front of 1&2 Boston Lodge ahead of groundworks in that area.

If you want to work off some of those festive calories come and find out more and get involved uncovering the historic floors and walls.  

Our archaeologist, Bob Zeepvat, will also talk about some of the other archaeology uncovered on site during the works. 

Please contact James Kindberg ( if you wish to attend this workshop.

What do I need to know before I come?

Boston Lodge is a working engineering site with rails and uneven surfaces throughout, often muddy in places and this is combined with frequent vehicle and train movements. For safety reasons it is therefore only suitable for people who are fully mobile without assistance and who’s sight is sufficient for them to see dangers themselves. Please watch this safety briefing before booking as it will help you understand what the site is like.

Unless specifically advertised all workshops and tours are for adults (16+).

We are hoping to film some of our tours and make them available on the website so those who cannot attend because the site is unsuitable for them will be able to find out more online.
