Congratulations everybody.  It is quite an achievement.

The detail above shows that the very north end of this field is quite busy.  This is unsurprising being right next to the Chester Gate.  The sinuous ditch, or should we just call it the aqueduct?, leaves the town about 50m away from the gate.  Unfortunately, it goes straight into woodland. Hopefully, we may get a chance one day to look for it the other side of the wall.  Rosalind Niblett traced what she thinks is the aqueduct from aerial photographs all the way the valley to Redbourne.

The mag team also started in the next field, but I’ll report on that when there is a little more completed.  The res team struggled with the hard, dry ground conditions and managed another two grid squares.  We will have to stop doing res until we have had some rain.  There is some forecast tomorrow.  The GPR team also completed two areas.  I wanted to post the completion of the field, so I’ll report on everything else this evening.
