Geophysics Survey of Boldron
Boldron History Group commissioned a geophysics survey and report of the village green with the hope of better understanding the history of the village green and developing a new area for the group to research. The project involved volunteers in the village and also involved practical experience for students from Durham University. Members of Boldron Parish History Group received training in geophysical survey techniques and were given the opportunity to conduct surveys on The Green. Neither survey technique recorded the presence of structures or linear features such as wall‐footings or ditches across The Green, which would support the notion that the area has always been open.
This project is now complete
