Brede High Woods: update
The community excavation at Brede High Farm is now underway and the results so far are really interesting. We have located the brick foundations of what appears to be the cellar of the farmhouse, almost two metres below ground level, but these appear to be the only surviving remains of the farmhouse. We have uncovered the foundations of the oasthouse, although its adjcaent store building appears to have been totally robbed-out during the demolition of the farm in the 1930's. The best preserved remains are a small outbuilding, walled yard and pigsties where some wall foundations survive up to 0.5m in height.
