Upcoming event, 7th November 7.30pm – talk about Highgate Wood Roman Kiln
You are most welcome to come to our November members’ meeting on Thursday 7th November at 7.30pm, held at North Bank on Pages Lane. In 1962 a Roman pottery production site was discovered in Highgate Wood. There then followed a series of research excavations from 1966 to 1974 in the area excavating 10 kilns and associated features. Our speaker, Nick Peacey, has since built and fired a series of kilns using clay and wood from Highgate Wood. He is now leading a campaign to return the best-preserved kiln to the Wood along with a range of exciting community and learning activities that will support its exhibition.
