St Helen's Church

3 Lower Church St, Ashby-de-la-Zouch
LE65 1AA, Royaume-Uni

https://sthelensashby.net/

St Helen's Church is the Anglican parish church of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, in the deanery of North West Leicestershire and the Diocese of Leicester.
There was a church in the town in the 11th century, but the core of the present building mainly dates from work started in 1474, when the church was rebuilt by William Hastings at the same time that he converted his neighbouring manor house into a castle.
The church was refurbished in about 1670 to create more space, but the large and increasing size of the congregation led to further work in 1829, and a major rebuild in 1878–80, including the widening of the nave by the addition of two outer aisles.

Lecture

Medieval Coal Mining in Leicestershire
An illustrated talk by Stuart Warburton, former Curator at Snibston Discovery Museum.
Nationally important artefacts from the 15th and 18th centuries were unearthed between 1987 and 1994, re-writing the history books relating to medieval mining.
Stuart was responsible for acquiring the artefacts for the museum: their care, conservation and interpretation. He managed the archaeological recording of the mine workings and the removal of a medieval mineshaft unique to the UK.

Stuart’s talk will outline the importance of the artefacts and the Lounge site and explain their importance toward understanding mining in Europe.

You never know what treasures you may find! Create clay pots, just like the ones on display in the museum and have a go at our medieval games and puzzles.

When William the Conqueror invaded England and won the Battle of Hastings in 1066, Oxford Castle was marked by the Normans as the ideal place for a motte-and-bailey castle.

Now in its ninth year of excavation, the Late Bronze Age/Iron Age double ringwork enclosure of Meillionydd, near Rhiw, on the Llŷn peninsula in northwest Wales has generated some spectacular results.

Occupied for c. 500 years and containing a large number of timber- and stone-built roundhouses as well as a range of other features, the site has a complex stratigraphy. The excavation team from Bangor University‘s School of History, Philosophy and Social Sciences has previously excavated the settlement’s entrance area and cross-sectioned the site.
